In yet another shocking case a 22 year-old woman was found dead in the streets of Noida. Police alleges that whether or not the woman had been raped could only be established after a post-mortem.
The victim had left home at 8.30 am on Friday to attend to work at a call centre in Sector 63, her mother said. When her daughter did not return till 10 pm, a search was conducted. Policemen said that the woman may have “eloped with a boyfriend”, and refused to take the matter seriously.
The woman’s mother was told by her fellow workers that she had left office premises at 9 pm on Friday. On Saturday, the mother received a call, informing her that her daughter lay dead on the roadside at Sector 63, her body stripped of clothing. The mother alleged that her daughter had been stripped by men who had raped her.
“An autopsy is being conducted by a panel of three doctors. Appropriate legal action would be initiated after the outcome of the post-mortem report is made known,” said SSP Noida Praveen Kumar.
