The body of a young woman was found crammed into a suitcase on Wednesday morning in the conservancy lane.

The Kempegowda Nagar Nagar police said that around 8.30 a.m. a passerby saw the abandoned suitcase, and when he opened it, to his utter horror, he saw the body.

“The woman looks around 20,” said a police official. “We're surprised that a body could be packed in a 2.5 foot by 1.5 foot bag,” he said. There was no identification on the woman.

The body, which bore no signs of injuries, was sent for post-mortem analysis.
