Basti (Uttar Pradesh) [India], November 16 (ANI): The body of a 23-year-old girl, who went missing last week, was found in Basti's Kalwar on Sunday, the police said.

Basti Superintendent of Police (SP) Hemraj Meena said that the post-mortem report has not confirmed rape.

"Body of a 23-year-old girl found in Kathwaliya village of Kalwari near her residence. The girl went out of home from November 10 but did not return. The police inquired about it and later registered a case," Meena told ANI.
