Dalit woman’s autopsy suggests strangulation
In a shocking turn of events, the body of the Dalit woman who went missing for the past two months was found on the property of a former minister in the then Akhilesh Yadav government.
The woman’s body was recovered when the Sadar Kotwali Police SWAT team reached the spot and dug out the body — buried four feet under the ground. There was an uproar after the family members were informed about the body.
Police recovered her decomposed body near an ashram owned by the son of late Fateh Bahadur Singh (SP leader), a former Uttar Pradesh minister. The autopsy revealed that she was strangulated. The post-mortem report also showed that her neck was broken.

The woman’s mother said, “My daughter was killed by Rajol Singh in his ashram and buried there. I had gone to the ashram earlier. They showed us the whole premises, except the three-storey building. I had called a local police officer, but he switched his phone off. If he had come, I would have found my daughter alive.”
On January 25, the woman’s mother had tried to immolate herself in front of Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav’s vehicle in Lucknow. Earlier, on January 24, Rajol Singh, the son of Fateh Bahadur Singh was arrested in connection with the alleged kidnapping of the woman.
