On December 4, a pedestrian saw Anil allegedly trying to have “unnatural sex” with the body that was abandoned near Sarai Kale Khan bus stand along the bank of Yamuna river around 3.45 PM, he said.

Passersby made a PCR call, following which a team was sent to the spot and the accused was arrested.

The woman, who was in her 30s, hasn’t yet been identified.

The woman’s face has been smashed with a stone and she was strangulated to death, said the officer.
