A young married woman, who was found abandoned in an injured condition on the railway tracks in K G Halli, succumbed to injuries on Monday morning. The deceased has been identified as Farha, 20.
Some of the residents alerted K G Halli police Sunday night that a woman was found abandoned injured on the railway tracks near the Shampur Railway Gate.
A police team rushed to the spot and took the woman to Dr B R Ambedkar Medical College and Hospital.
Police sources say that though they suspect that she might have been hit by a speeding train, the nature of her head injuries suggests that someone attempted to murder her. Thereafter, she was abandoned on the railway tracks.
During investigation, police were led to her house in Gandhinagar, K G Halli, and discovered that her husband has been missing since the incident.
Police suspect that the husband might be involved in the incident and have launched a manhunt for him.
The case was later transferred to Byappanahalli Railway Police.
