Chandigarh, January 13

The naked body of a 40-year-old woman, who had gone missing from Maloya last evening, was found today in a forest area hardly 50 metres away from her house. Socks were found stuffed in her mouth.

The police said it was suspected that the victim was raped before being murdered. However, sexual assault would be confirmed only after the postmortem, which would be conducted tomorrow.
