MUZAFFARNAGAR: A 35-year-old sadhvi's naked body was found in a sugarcane field under mysterious circumstances near Morna-Laskar Road in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district, police said.

The body of Sadhvi Sunita Nath was found in the fields on Thursday, according to Bhopa station house officer M S Gill.

According to the post mortem report, the woman was strangulated to death while blood samples have been sent to a laboratory for confirmation of rape.

The deceased woman's brother has lodged an FIR against unidentified miscreants mentioning that she had come to Shukratal, a holy place, for religious offerings.

Police registered a case of murder and an investigation is underway, the SHO said.

A Haryana-registered car was also found parked near the place where the body was found, Gill said.
