KOTTAYAM: IN a shocking incident, the body of a woman, who was reportedly pregnant, was found covered in a polythene sheet in a rubber plantation, near Athirampuzha, on Monday morning. The police could not identify the person aged around 40 years even by late night.

The body was found at the rubber plantation being owned by Lucka Jose, of Painayil House at Aikkarakkunnel along Aikkarakkunnel -Ottakappilumakkal Road, near Athirampuzha,  around 6.15 am.
