Bijnor: A 22-year-old woman, who had gone missing on Sunday night, was found dead in the Malan River in Bijnor’s Mandawar area.
The missing woman, whose father has been critically injured in a recent accident, was set to get married on Tuesday. The woman’s mother had also passed away a few years ago.
Police found the body on Monday and sent it for post-mortem.

Her mother died a few years ago while her father recently suffered severe injuries in a road accident. Her marriage was scheduled for Tuesday. She may have committed suicide. A probe is currently on.”
The woman went missing on Sunday night and family members and neighbours initially tried to trace her, but failed in their efforts.
