New Delhi: A 24-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly having "unnatural sex" with body of a woman in southeast Delhi, police said today.

Accused Anil is a drug addict and also "mentally unstable", a senior police officer said.

On December 4, a pedestrian saw Anil allegedly trying to have "unnatural sex" with the body that was abandoned near Sarai Kale Khan bus stand along the bank of Yamuna river around 3.45 PM, he said.

Passersby made a PCR call, following which a team was sent to the spot and the accused was arrested.

"The accused has been sent to judicial custody looking at his mental condition. The jail authorities have been asked to get him medically and psychologically examined," the officer said.

The woman, who was in her 30s, hasn't yet been identified.

The woman's face has been smashed with a stone and she was strangulated to death, said the officer.

Anil said he along with another person, had sexually assaulted the body, and police are probing about the involvement of the other person, he added.

Anil, however, has denied murdering the woman and police is looking for clues that could help them identify the woman and the murderer, said the officer.

He said they were also investigating whether the woman had been sexually assaulted before being murdered.
