The upper part of her body was partially eaten by animals. “Her body carried grievous injuries on head, chest and thighs. Unnatural sex was performed on the deceased”, said a doctor of the forensic department at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences here.

On the cause of death, the doctor said serious multiple injuries, including on her private parts, caused her death. The doctor said samples have been sent to Madhuban in Karnal for confirmation of rape.
