The dead body of a 22-year-old woman missing since Saturday was found buried near a religious ashram near her home in a village at Gagret in Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday following the arrest and confession of her murderer, the Una district police said.
The arrest led to a tense situation in the village as irate residents stormed the ashram complex demanding a confrontation with the accused.
The matter
SP Una Arjit Sen said that the crime took place at Jadla Kohri village where a woman
was missing from her home on April 3. Her family reported the matter at the Gagret police station the next day.
Officials said that the police zeroed in on a 23-year-old man working at an ashram near her home using the call detail records of the victim.
Upon interrogation, the man confessed to have killed the woman on Saturday by hitting her with an iron rod, and also identified the spot in the field adjoining the ashram where he had buried her body. The police exhumed the body and transferred it to the Tanda medical
hospital for postmortem.
The head priest of the ashram was away when the incident occurred. The accused, a native of Gyanpur in Uttar Pradesh, worked at the ashram and knew the woman but the motive behind the murder was not immediately clear, officials said.
Meanwhile, residents of the village gathered at the spot outnumbering the police and stormed into the ashram, but the situation was later diffused as senior police officials reached the spot.
The deceased was an M.Com student and recently engaged to be married, police source added.
