A dead body of a woman was found in a decayed condition in the forest area of Thally.
Police have recovered the body and are investigating, whether the woman died due to elephant stamping or snake bite or murder or by other means.
The body was found in Theverbetta reserved forest. Villagers noticed the dead due to bad odour and alerted the police. It is said that the woman might have dead 5 days ago and she looks as if aged around 50 to 60.
post-mortem was done in the same place where the dead body was found as it was mostly impossible to shift it to Government Hospital.
As Theverbetta reserved forest is of elephants, the possibility of her death due to elephant attack is more.
