Upset over Anju's affair, her uncle Jasmer Singh killed her and hanged her body from a tree in the Morni forests, said Chandimandir police station SHO Satish Kumar, adding that the police were on the lookout for Jasmer.
The highly decomposed body, almost reduced to a skeleton, was noticed by some workers of the forest department on July 24. The police examined the body and came to the conclusion that it was at least three months old. The skeleton was sent to the forensic laboratory in Madhuban, Karnal, for tests. The police later succeeded in identifying the body on the basis of the girl's clothes and bangles, and interrogated the victim's family members.
