Two days after a woman veterinarian was raped and set ablaze by four men in Hyderabad, the charred body of another woman, who is yet to be identified, was found in the same locality on Friday.
The suspected killing of the unidentified woman was reported from the same area -Shamshabad- where the woman veterinarian was raped and killed by four workers on November 27.
According to the police, the burnt body of an unknown woman, aged between 30 and 35 years, was found near the Siddulagutta Temple road under the limits of Cyberabad Police Commissionerate. The police have sent the body for autopsy.
Assistant Police Commissioner, Ashok Kumar Goud, said some passersby noticed the burnt body and informed them.
Police personnel were rushed to the spot who sent the body to a state-run hospital, he added.
It was not clear whether the woman committed suicide by setting herself ablaze or whether she was killed, he said.
The latest incident was reported a day after the charred body of a veterinarian was found near Shadnagar town, about 50 km from Hyderabad.
Police cracked the sensational case on Friday with the arrest of four truck drivers and cleaners. They gang-raped the 25-year-old near the Tondupally toll plaza on Outer Ring Road at Shamshabad and carried the body in a truck to Shadnagar town before setting it afire.
