In yet another shameful incident, an 80-year-old woman was found murdered in Haryana's Sonipat on Wednesday, with a plastic bottle stuffed inside her private parts, reports suggest.
The incident came to light on 4 January, when the deceased's son, who lives on the first floor of the house, found his mother lying naked in a pool of blood.
Sonipat Sadar police station SHO Prahlad Singh reportedly said, "Jai Bhagwan was the first to see his mother's body. When he removed the quilts, he saw the blood. He informed the neighbors who called the police. We have asked the doctors to take swabs to ascertain whether victim was subjected to sexual abuse or not."
But during the postmortem, the doctors found a bottle of toilet cleaner stuffed in the victim's anal cavity.
"You won't believe what I saw. Imagine the pain the victim must have gone through," Dr Sumit Kaushal, a member of the medical board constituted to conduct autopsy told the Times Of India.
The bottle was inserted with such force that it caused the anus to rupture and damaged the small and big intestines leading to excessive internal bleeding, which is believed to be the cause of the death, the report further said.
According to a report in The Hindustan Times, Sonepat witnessed 38% rise in rapes and 36% rise in murders against weaker sections of the society as compared to 2015.
