New Delhi: Body of a 68-year-old womanwas today found at her residence in Paschim Vihar in West Delhi.
Krishna Devi Arora was allegedly strangulated to death, police said.
Arora, who was childless, lived alone at the ground floor of her house following her husband’s death last year while the first floor was given on rent.
She used to stay in touch with her nephew Chinnu, a grocery shop owner, who would usually have his lunch at her place.
“As he could not make it to her place today due to workload, he had sent his employee to collect tiffin box from her around 4 PM,” a senior police official said.
“The employee found door of Arora’s house open. The house was ransacked and she was lying dead, following which the employee informed us,” the official said.
Prime facie the motive behind the alleged attack appeared to be robbery as the victim’s house was found ransacked, police said.
The police have constituted teams to crack the case and have initiated probe in the matter.
