Two days after the chopped body of a pregnant woman was found dumped in Hyderabad, the Cyberabad police have announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for any information on the killers, who are yet to be identified.

The body was found at Sri Ram Nagar, next to Botanical Gardens, which is situated close to the city's IT hub.

The police said that the woman was killed at an unknown place two to three days ago, and her decomposed body was dumped on the road later.

According to reports, the police suspect the accused may either work at a hotel, restaurant, super market or departmental store that uses spices from an Indore-based company, flour from a mill in Lathur and chilli from an outlet in Guntur.

The police said that these were the brands displayed on the sacks in which the woman's body parts were found. 

A postmortem examination revealed that the woman may have also been beaten before she was killed, as she had a fractured pelvis and a ruptured uterus, besides broken ribs.

In an earlier press release, the police had said, "The lady is about 5 feet 4 inches tall, medium built, about 30 years old, round faced and has a fair complexion. She was eight months pregnant. She wore a maroon colour kurta, red colour pyjama, silver toe rings, maroon colour bangles and a copper finger ring."

"The Cyberabad police requests all doctors, mainly obstetricians and gynecologists, to inform us if any lady with such a description came for consultations. Flat owners or neighbours can also provide clues if they have seen a similar dress or came to know about a missing pregnant woman," the police added.

The police are also looking at CCTV footage to ascertain if any vehicle passed the area at night, and may have dumped the bag at the spot.

The body was found around 7.30am by two workers of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) as they did their morning rounds to collect garbage.
