SHILLONG, Dec 05: In a shocking incident, the naked body of a young girl was recovered on the banks of River Umshyrpi late on Tuesday night.
According to police, the body was found on the bank of river Umshyrpi near Mathura compound under Jhalupara Police outpost, a place which has a steep gradient and therefore difficult to get to.
SP (City) Steve Rynjah informed that the girl who is between 23 and 25 years old was a resident of Nongmynsong and was missing since November 30.
Although there were no signs of any injury, police are suspecting rape and murder and the postmortem report is awaited to ascertain this.
The girl had separated from her husband and was living with her brother in Nongmynsong.
Her absence did not cause worry or suspicion to the immediate family as she used to frequently visit her friends and stay out with them for a few days.
