Priyanka’s body was found in a sitting posture on the sofa, her hands tied and throat slit with a kitchen knife. The police discovered knife wounds on Priyanka’s belly, but the gruesomeness of the murder could be gauged by the violence committed on the body. After slitting Priyanka’s throat, the killer or killers twisted the blade indiscriminately in the flesh.
