NEW DELHI: A highly decomposed body of a woman was found at her residence in Bara Hindu Rao here on Tuesday.

The incident came to light in the morning when some neighbours informed the police about a foul smell emanating from the house in Nawabganj. When the police reached there, the body of the woman, later identified as Kesar Jahan (50), was found wrapped in a blanket in her room. Her throat had been slit with a sharp-edged weapon. The police said the murder was committed more than 24 hours ago. The police suspect a property dispute behind the murder.
