Woman from Meghalaya found dead in west Delhi

New Delhi: A 35-year-old woman from Meghalaya was found dead under mysterious circumstances at her rented accommodation in west Delhi’s Janakpuri area today.

The woman has been identified as Bahun Marbaninang, a native of Meghalaya. There were apparently some injury marks on her knees but the cause of death has not been ascertained as yet, a senior official said.

“The matter came to light in the morning, following which her relatives were informed. Once they reach Delhi, the body will be sent for a postmortem examination. The cause of death can only be ascertained after that,” the senior official said.

During preliminary investigation, it emerged that the woman returned in the wee hours today from a party, which was organised by her friend who is the son of the owner of a private school in the area.

“We are questioning her associates in order to construct a sequence of events in connection with the matter. No case has been registered so far,” the senior official said.
