New Delhi: A 75-year-old woman, who was allegedly into illicit liquor trade, was found dead in East Delhi’s Trilokpuri area last night.

Police said Amanni’s body with a gash on the neck was found by her nephew around 8 today morning at her home. He had come to visit her aunt last night.

Three suspects have been rounded up, said a senior police officer, adding they used to visit her regularly.

The murder is likely to have taken place late yesterday night but exact details are expected to come after questioning of the suspects and further verification, he said.
