NEW DELHI, APR 10 : A woman whose body was parcelled to Ajmer in Rajasthan from north Delhi March 31 is yet to be identified, police said Sunday.
Police suspect that the woman, aged around 25 years, was brutally tortured and murdered as there were burn injuries and stab wounds on her body.
“The woman has not been identified till now. According to the transportation slip, the body was parcelled by Milap Transport Roadlines from the Lahori Gate area in north Delhi to its branch in Kishangarh in Ajmer,” a police officer said.
“A team of Rajasthan Police has come to Delhi to investigate the matter and we are helping them,” he added.
The body was discovered by transport company workers April 8 in their Ajmer office after a foul smell started emanating from the parcel containing the body.
In the transport slip, the sender has been identified as “B” and the receiver was mentioned as “self”.
On paper, it was mentioned that the parcel had some electronic goods and the receiver will pick it up from the transport company.
“The dispatch date was March 31, so the body is at least a week old,” the officer added. Police said it was sheer negligence on the part of the transport company as neither the sender nor the receiver of the parcel had been properly identified in the transportation slip.
