The body had strangulation marks and police have registered a case of murder. They are trying to identify the deceased and nab her killers.
“We received a call around 12:30am about a bag containing a woman’s body found on board the EMU local from Panipat to Ghaziabad, which was on platform number nine. The unattended bag was spotted by a passenger, who found it suspicious and made a call to the police control room,” said a senior railway police officer.
A police team reached the spot and took the bag in their custody. They were told the body had been found on a train which had just pulled into the station from Panipat.
“The victim seems to be aged between 30 and 35 years and was wearing a brown salwar suit. Her legs, hands and neck were tied with a green plastic rope,” the officer said, adding they were trying to ascertain whether a person of her description had recently been reported missing from the NCR.
