Dehradun: A beheaded body of a woman was recovered from army area near Raj Bhawan in the city, police said on Thursday.

The headless body of a 27-year-old woman kept in a sack was found by rag pickers in the army area about 200 metres from Raj Bhawan on Wednesday evening, SP (city) Jagdish Chandra said.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the woman was apparently pregnant and was possibly raped before being killed, he said.

It appears that the woman's body was dumped in the area after the crime was committed somewhere else, he said.

Efforts are on to identify the woman by collecting details of people who went missing from nearby districts recently, he said, adding a post mortem is underway.
