Mandsaur superintendent of police (SP) Anurag Sujaniya said the incident came to light after sharecropper Prahlad Prajapat, who had gone to visit the woman on Thursday morning to discuss the sale of opium, found the house door open and saw the woman lying dead on the floor.

Prahlad informed the police about the incident, following which a team reached the spot.

“The woman’s throat was slit with a sharp-edged weapon. There are also injury marks on her body as she struggled a lot to save herself before the murder,” said the SP.

The SP said that the seven kilograms of opium worth Rs.14 lakh, extracted from licensed farmland, was missing from her house, suspecting that theft could be a reason behind the alleged murder.
