The woman had gone to the army base hospital in Delhi Cantonment before she was found dead
The Hush Post: The wife of an Indian Army Major was found dead today with her throat slit on a street at Brar Square in south-west Delhi, close to the cantonment area, the police said, it was reported.
The 30-year-old woman had left home in the morning for a physiotherapy session at the base hospital in Delhi Cantonment, the police said, adding she was found dead half-an-hour later.
An official vehicle assigned to the Major dropped her outside the hospital. When the driver went to pick her up, he was told that the woman had not turned up for the physiotherapy session today, the police said.
The police got a call from passers-by about a body on the road. When they went to the spot, they found the woman’s throat had been slit, it was reported.
The police said the Major was also informed immediately.
Her body had marks that appear to have been caused by being run over by a vehicle. The police suspect she could have been murdered first and then run over by the killer, as she was last seen taking a lift in another car from outside the hospital after she was dropped by the driver, the police said. “We received a call for an accident but later found injuries on her neck. We are registering a murder case. We have solid clues about the accused. Her husband identified her,” senior police Vijay Kumar said.
The body has been sent for a post-mortem. The police said they are analyzing calls made from and received in her mobile phone.
