30-year-old woman found murdered in house

A woman of 30 years of age was found dead at her rented house in sector 11 of Indiranagar, Lucknow on Monday.

According to police, the owner of the house Jai Chandra Kannaujia went to collect rent from the woman on Sunday but returned after she did not open the door. On Monday, another neighbor from the same locality, Bille Sardar, noticed odour emanating from the house in which the woman lived. He immediately informed Kannaujia who in turn called the police.

Police broke open the door and found the woman's body on a bed, with her clothes in disarray.

The woman had come to live in the house three years ago with her husband, who died six months ago in a road accident. The residents of the locality said the woman wasn't seen for the past three days. Despite efforts, the woman's family could not be contacted.

SP Transgomti Dinesh Yadav said, "It would be too early too comment on the reasons for the crime. We are working on every angle and examining people who visited the woman in order to get some leads in the case."
