Additional SP, Chandrakant Meena, said on Thursday: "Prima facie it seems someone deliberately tried to cover the victim's identity. Police have sent messages to nearby districts for any missing person report.

Station House Officer (SHO) Lal Kurti, Atar Singh said: "It is a blind case with no clues whatsoever. The body is highly decomposed and even identification of the correct age is difficult. The autopsy will take place on Thursday and the cause of death might be ascertained after that."
