The body of a young woman weightlifter, who had been working as a physical training instructor (PTI) at a school in Bhopal, was found lying along a canal near Dhamar village in Rohtak district on Thursday.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the woman had come from Bhopal to Rohtak, where she was murdered.

"The woman was identified with the help of a parking-lot receipt of Bhopal railway station where she had parked her vehicle. Her parents have been informed and the post-mortem examination of the body has been conducted," said DSP Sajjan Singh. The woman used to practice weightlifting and had accused a weightlifting coach working at a sports complex in Rohtak of sexual exploitation a couple of years ago.

In a statement recorded with the police, Dhamar village sarpanch Wazir Singh said he got information that the body of a 20-22-year-old woman was lying along the JLN canal near the village.

"I went to the spot along with some prominent residents and found that the woman's throat had been slit with some sharp-edged weapon. It seemed that somebody had murdered her and threw the body near the canal," said the sarpanch.

A case has been registered under Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (destruction of evidence) of the IPC at Rohtak (Sadar) police station on the basis of the complaint.
