**Soro: ** The dead body of an unidentified woman has been found in the crop fields at Sadhuapada village under Soro Police limits in Balasore district.
The woman, in her 30s, has a plaster on one of her hands. Pieces of broken bangles and tattered underclothings were recovered from the crime spot. Her neck bears strangulation marks while her nose had traces of foam, which suggests that she might have been poisoned too.
Prime facie suggests that she was brutally raped and murdered after which the perpetrators dragged and dumped her body in the fields.
The body was lying in the crop fields and was spotted by a few villagers on Friday morning who raised an alarm and alerted the police.
IIC of Soro Police Station Dilip Kumar Sahoo said, “The woman’s body is badly battered and there are multiple injury marks on her neck, stomach and other parts. The body has been shifted to a local government hospital for post-mortem.”
“We are in the preliminary stage of investigation and the exact cause of her death would be ascertained only after the autopsy report comes,” he added.
Police officials also confirmed that no identification of the body has been done so far.
