Guwahati: Headless female body recovered near Kamakhya temple ahead of Ambubachi Mela
GUWAHATI: A headless body of a woman was recovered from the Nilachal Hills, a few metres from Kamakhya Temple, on June 19. The identity of the woman is yet to be ascertained.
Police also recovered some flowers, a packet of incense sticks and other materials used for worship from near the body.
City police is currently investigating the matter but locals suspect it to be a case of black magic.
It must be mentioned that the district administration and police are gearing up to host Ambubachi Mela in the city from June 22 and have claimed to have beefed up the security in and around Kamakhya Temple.
This incident, however, questions the security arrangements ahead of the festival.
More details awaited.
