A 28- year-old woman was found murdered in her rented house in AKG Colony near Kadugodi Saturday evening.
Shaheena, who worked in the canteen of GE Global Research on Whitefield Road, may have been killed three days ago as the body was partially decomposed, deputy commissioner T D Pawar said.
Shaheena had been strangled with an electric wire from her water heater. The incident came to light Saturday when neighbours complained of foul smell emanating from the house. The police said Shaheena was married to a cab driver and had been living in the house for the past eight months.
