As the General Railway Police (GRP) did not reach on time, dogs were seen feeding on the body of a woman near the railway tracks today. Kamla Devi, a resident of Sector 19, was over run by a Janshatabdi train in the morning.
According to family members, she left her house at around 6 am to meet her sister-in-law at Nalagarh. Eyewitnesses claimed that she was standing close to the Sector 19 railway crossing and when the Janshatabdi came, she went in front of it.
Her body was crushed and parts of it thrown around, and people immediately informed the police. Though the Panchkula police reached on time, the GRP took about an hour and a half to reach the spot.
After arriving, it continued with its investigation and the body was kept lying on the tracks for another two hours. Dogs started feeding on the pieces of flesh strewn around.
The body was taken for post mortem to the Sector-6 based General Hospital, after which it was handed over to the family members. GRP police station SHO Inspector Mahendar Pal said, "It is important to get the body identified on the spot, as otherwise family members might raise allegations about the cause of death. Photography of the spot was also important. This took some time."
He added that no eyewitness came forward to assure that it was a suicide. "Now, only the statement of the driver of the train can ascertain whether it was an accident or suicide," he said.
