Aizawl, Oct 4 (PTI) : The severed right leg of a woman found at Tlawng river near Sairang village, about 30 km west from here was today accorded a decent burial after a formal Christian funeral, sources from Sairang village said. The religious rites was performed by Rev. Thantluanga of Sairang Presbyterian Church pastoral at Young Mizo Association (YMA) Hall of Sairang Dinthar locality before being laid to rest at the locality's cemetery. The right limb of a girl was found by crab collectors at river Tlawng on September 30 and the efforts to recover the rest of the body by the police and volunteers from surrounding villages bore no fruit till date. Aizawl district Superintendent of Police Lalbiakthanga Khiangte said that a case was registered and investigation launched while forensic experts had examined the severed limb by taking the DNA. He said that it was difficult to ascertain the size of the leg as it was in a highly decomposed state and swollen. "Inquest report suggested that the leg was severed with sharp weapon like machete or knife," he added. Reports said that there were missing girls from Thenzawl, Sakawrdai and Vairengte villages and the relatives of the missing girls have been asked to examine and identify the severed leg, but no positive identification had been made till date.
