Cooch Behar: A woman’s dead body, tied up inside a jute sack and stuffed into a tin trunk, was found by a road at Cooch Behar town today.

The trunk was spotted by residents at a garbage dump near the Power House Choupathay in the town. This raised a suspicion and they alerted the Kotwali police station.

On opening the black-colour trunk, the cops found a sack with a woman’s nude body. There were multiple injuries in the face. The body was subsequently sent for post-mortem, even as police are yet to establish the identity of the woman.

Police suspect that the middle-aged woman was murdered somewhere close by and the trunk loaded with the dead body was dumped at the garbage dump last night.
