The body of an unidentified woman was today found at an under-construction building in Rohini area, police said.

A watchman of the building told the police that last night a man with his wife and a one-year-old son asked for food and shelter from him, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) Rajneesh Gupta said.

He told the police that he gave them food and handed a tarpaulin so that they could go and sleep on the first floor of the building, the police said.

This morning, the watchman heard the child crying and when he went upstairs, he saw the woman's body and the husband missing, they said.

It was suspected that the husband allegedly killed her, the police said.

The police was questioning the watchman about the identity of the couple. However, some contradictions were found in his statement, they said.

The police said they have sent the pictures of the woman to the neighbouring police stations to identify her.
