Mumbai, March 10 (IANS) A woman’s body was found stuffed inside a suitcase near Mumbai’s Juhu Beach Thursday, police said.
The body of the woman, believed to be around 30 years old, was found with cuts and bruises on her face. Her hands and legs had been tied together. A cloth was used to veil her face and she was dressed in a shirt and a skirt, a police official said.
“We have sent the body for post-mortem. We are trying to identify the woman. But it is difficult as her face is swollen,” Deputy Commissioner of Police M.M. Prasanna told reporters.
The suitcase was found by a local resident early Thursday near an isolated part of the beach, inhibited mostly by fishermen.
The police is planning to check the missing persons report to get a clue, an official said. The police, however, believe she was killed in the last 24 hours.
