On Thursday, authorities discovered the decomposed body of an unnamed woman near the Mula river at Maan in the Hinjewadi area of Pimpri Chinchwad. The body is yet to be identified, but the corpse appears to be four to five weeks old, according to the Pimpri Chinchwad police.
Hinjewadi senior inspector Balkrishna Sawant commented that the body was found highly decomposed, suggesting that the death had occurred a long time ago. “The team is waiting to get the report of the autopsy. In the interim, we have recorded an instance of homicide against unidentified suspects and have begun an investigation.”
The police also said that the body was not hanging but was just kept on a tree.
Sawant additionally said that no one normally wanders into the steep hills of Maan village. On Wednesday, however, a group of kids came to this location and discovered the body on the tree and that they were the ones who sounded the alarm.
He said that they are not aware of the woman’s age, name, or any other data yet and that It is also unclear whether this was a homicide or a suicide.
The commissioner of Pimpri Chinchwad city, Krishnapaksh, has appealed to families whose female members have gone missing to come forward and assist in the woman’s identification process.
Under sections 302 (the penalty for murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of the offence or giving false information to screen perpetrator) of the Indian Penal Code(IPC), the police have filed a First Information Report (FIR) against unknown people.
According to the authorities, the body has been submitted for a postmortem, forensic analysis, and a Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) test.
