SIRSA - A young woman’s body parts stuffed into a sack have been found in Sirsa district of Haryana in a suspected case of honour killing, police said here Sunday.
The sack was recovered in Kangnapur village.
“We have found the head and lower limbs of a woman who was in her early 20s but it is very difficult to identify her. It could be a case of honour killing and we are taking the help of sniffer dogs and forensic experts to solve it,” said Jitender Singh, investigation officer.
According to police, the sack was first noticed by labourers working in the government school building here late Saturday. They informed the village sarpanch (headman), who called the police.
“We have informed two families where girls went missing in the last one month. A case has been registered,” Singh added.
Haryana is infamous for honour killings. Many such cases of murder of youngsters have rocked the state in the past year.
