Goa police are investigating into the death of 24-year-old Russian girl whose mutilated body was found on Railway tracks near Mapusa town on Friday morning.

Police stated that Elena Sukhnova's scattered body organs were found on the track at Revora village, 15 kms away from Panaji.

The Russian girl was apparently holidaying in Goa and had checked in at a lodge at Baga, a beach village in North Goa.

“We inquired with the lodge owner who confirmed that the girl checked in on May 6 and later went out with hotel keys on May 7 at 10.30 pm,” Mapusa town police, who are investigating into the case, said.

The dead body was traced on the tracks at 8 am next day.

Although police initially felt that the girl may have died after falling off from the train, they are also investigating the case from different angles.

The dead body is sent for post-mortem, which will give directions to the police investigation.

Meanwhile, Russian consulate has taken cognizance of the death. “We are awaiting few details from the police. Also the post-mortem report would be crucial,” Vikram Varma, legal advisory for Russian consulate told PTI.
