Nalgonda: An elderly woman’s body was found in D-37 distributory canal of SLBC at Chinthabaigudem village on Tuesday evening.
The victim was identified as Medula Yadamma (65), a resident of Kothapally village in Nalgonda mandal. She had left home on Thursday. As her son Jan Reddy, who was a lorry driver, went on duty a week back, she was alone at her home. After returning from the duty on Tuesday, Jan Reddy inquired the villagers about his mother as she was not present in the house.
When a villager told him that he saw her moving near the canal, Jan Reddy, with the help of the villagers, searched the canal area and found her body in the canal. However, the reason for her death is yet to be ascertained.
Nalgonda Rural Police rushed to the place and took up measures to fish out the body from the waters.
