Hyderabad: A 27-year-old woman was found dead with burn injuries under suspicious circumstances, here on Tuesday, police said.

The police received a call regarding the incident early in the morning after the neighbours informed them that the woman, Sowmya, has been set on fire, according to police.

At the time of the incident, Sowmya was with her half-year-old son, who has been saved by the neighbours.

The incident reportedly took place at 0030 hours after her husband, who is an engineer, left for work at 8:30 pm.

According to police, the incident has raised suspicion as her flat was found to be locked from outside by the neighbours when they went to rescue Sowmya and her son.

The body had few other injury marks too, the police said and added that they suspect it to be a murder and not suicide.

An FIR has been registered, and a probe has been initiated.(ANI)
