"There were no clothes on the lower part of the woman's body...It suggests that there might have been an attempt to rape her. We have sent her clothes for forensic analysis," the police officer said.

Accused Mangal (35) have been booked for murder and arrested after the body was recovered and a complaint was filed by the woman's brother.

Circumstances suggest that the woman was strangulated and then stabbed to death after she stopped the accused from sexually assaulting her, the police officer said.
