In a gruesome incident at Coimbatore that was caught on CCTV, a woman appearing to be half-naked was thrown seemingly from a moving car.
The woman was reported dead as several passing vehicles went over her body around 5.45 am in the Chinniyampalayam area on the Avinashi Road in Coimbatore on Monday.
Police in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore have set up two special teams to probe the death of the woman. The body was nearly unidentifiable after it was run over by several vehicles.
Peelamedu Police Station House Officer Muthumani and team reached Chinniyampalayam after a passerby on Monday morning informed the police of a woman's body lying there.
The body was taken to the Coimbatore Government Medical college and a post-mortem examination was conducted. Police suspect this to be a case of murder but are tightlipped on the post-mortem report.
"We are studying the post-mortem report and there are not many leads as of now regarding the identity of the deceased woman. I can't also reveal much on the details of the body as it was beyond recognition as several vehicles had run over the body," Muthumani told IANS.
CCTV visuals from a commercial establishment at Peelamedu revealed that the half-naked body was thrown out of an SUV early on Monday.
Police have registered a case under Section 174 of the CrPC and Coimbatore's Superintendent of Police constituted two special teams to probe the matter, as well as to ascertain the identity of the woman.
