The mummified body of a child was found in a passage by some women.

They thought that it was a dead monkey at first and put it in an ashbin. However, one of the women was not satisfied and took it out again and then informed the police.

A doctor said that the body had been kept in a dry place and presented the appearance of a monkey.

He said that death might have been due to strangulation.
