The body of an unidentified woman has been found stuffed inside a suitcase near Kondli canal in east Delhi’s Ashok Nagar, the police said on Wednesday.

The trolley bag was found abandoned near the canal at Dharamshila Road.

The body had sharp injuries, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Panjak Singh said.

He said a tattoo reading ‘Mohit’ in Hindi was found on her right hand.

A case has been registered at New Ashok Nagar police station and the matter is being probed, Mr. Singh also said.

The body has not been identified yet, the police said, adding that they are also scanning the profiles of missing women registered at local police stations.

Since no CCTV cameras are installed at or near the spot, we could not find out who had dumped the bag, he said.
