The body of a 56-year-old homemaker was found floating in a pond near her house in Patuli on Sunday.
Police said Chandana Karmakar, a resident of Sree Colony in Patuli, had gone out for her morning walk. A youth came to her house around 8am and informed the family about the death.
No injury mark was found on the body. Police have started a case of unnatural death. “The woman must have slipped into the pond. The body has been sent for autopsy,” said an officer. The police said she used to walk barefoot and the morning mist had made the place slippery.
