In yet another stunning incident, a 85-year-old elderly lady was professedly wounded to death in the wake of being raped in a village here, police said on Tuesday.
Her body with stab wounds was found in a field.
A case has been enlisted against unidentified rapscallions and the body has been sent for after postmortem, Circle Officer AKS Pratap said.
Police said that it appears the lady was first raped and after that slaughtered. The postmortem report is anticipated, they said.
Angry villagers had obstructed a street and had declined to handover the body to the police.
Security has been reinforced in the zone, the officer said.
