Burnt remains of a person were found in a waste dump near a field in the Farrukh Nagar locality of Sahibabad on Wednesday. The residents claimed that it could be a case of "honour killing" but the police refused to say anything, pointing out that forensic reports are yet to be come out.

Local residents found remains of a human skeleton burning inside a waste dump.

"Prima facie, we suspect that the body was that of a woman but we have sent the remains for a forensic examination where the DNA-profiling would also be conducted," SSP Prashant Kumar told Hindustan Times.
