3rd case in 3 months
This is the third incident

of a body being found at a Bengaluru railway station.
On January 4, railway police found decomposing body of a young woman inside a blue plastic drum abandoned at the end of platform at the Yeshwanthpur railway station. The victim was believed to have been strangled with a dupatta. The body was found when a sweeper at the railway station informed the police of a foul smell from a plastic drum. When the police opened the drum, the woman’s body was found along with clothes.
Similarly, in the second week of December, an unidentified woman’s body was found in a yellow sack on a coach of a passenger train at SMVT station. The highly decomposed remains were discovered after a passenger complained of a foul smell emanating from the gunny sack, which was dumped with other luggage.
