Woman found dead in Delhi

New Delhi, July 21 (IANS) A 38-year-old woman was found strangled to death at her home here — in the presence of her wailing three-year-old daughter, police said on Tuesday.

“Usha Jha was found gagged and her hands were tied to her chest. The house had been ransacked. It might be a case of a robbery gone wrong,” a police officer told IANS.

The incident took place in west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar area. Police suspect it happened between 3 and 5.30 p.m. on Monday.

“Her nephew Anshu had gone to meet her and found the front door locked from outside. He went in and found her body and her three-year-old daughter crying. He raised an alarm and informed us and the neighbours,” he said.

The woman was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared her dead. Jha’s husband Santosh works as an accountant with a private firm in Gurgaon.

“The assailants had tried to open the lockers but could not,” he added.
