HYDERABAD: In a horrifying incident, the body of an unidentified woman in naked condition and with her face crushed, was found underneath a culvert at Chevella of Cyberabad commissionerate on the city outskirts.

The incident comes close on the heels of the gang rape and brutal murder of a veterinarian at Shamshabad in November 2019.

According to police, passersby noticed a woman’s body lying underneath the culvert on the outskirts of Tangedapally village. The woman’s body had cut injuries on her lower jaw and on the throat.

Police suspect that her killers strangulated her with a nylon rope and killed her at a different location. After killing her, they transported her body and dumped it at the spot. To wipe out any evidence, they could have stripped her clothes and also crushed her face with a boulder.
