A 24-year-old woman was on Thursday found dead under mysterious circumstances in her rented house in south Delhi, police said.
Veerpal Kaur alias Nikki was found dead in her rented fourth floor accommodation in Kalkaji area after police broke open the doors, locked from outside.
The body, reportedly found semi-nude, has been sent for an autopsy.
Police said Kaur hailed from Moga in Punjab and worked as assistant project manager in an IT company in Okhla.
"Her colleagues and friends were trying to reach her on cell phone since Tuesday. But when her cell phone got switched off Wednesday, they came down to check on her. After finding her door locked from outside, they approached her landlord Manmohan Gupta," said a police officer.
"Gupta then called us. The deceased was staying in the house for the past one and half year," said the police officer.
