A resident of Kharabwadi in Chakan found a woman’s dead body at a field near a luxury car showroom on Friday morning. The incident was reported to a home guard, who lives in the region, who later reported the incident to Chakan rural police. The body was then sent to Sassoon Hospital for post-mortem. 

The face of the woman was cut at multiple places with a sharp object, according to the police. The woman had also suffered multiple cut marks on her body. The matter is being investigated by police inspector Manoj Yadav of Chakan police station while the body was brought to Sassoon Hospital by assistant police inspector Archana Dayal.

The woman was found wearing a red saree and a black blouse, according to the observations recorded on the spot. A case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 302 was registered at Chakan police station. 

Another unidentified body was found in a canal that runs along the Camp Education Society’s Kanya Shala. The body was noticed after  the school students complained of foul smell emanating from the canal which is inaccessible from three of the four directions.

A tree which had blocked the flow on the surface of the canal had led to saturation of  a thick layer of garbage amid which the body was found floating face down. The face of the man was beyond recognition, according to the police. The unidentified man was also taken to  Sassoon Hospital for post-mortem.

The fire brigade was approached on Thursday morning to recover the body, however, the garbage and position of the canal did not allow the fire brigade personnel access to the body. A crane was then called in to pull the tree from the canal to gain access to the body. The process went on until early hours of Friday evening.
