A 20-year-old woman who suffered an accident in Delhi’s Kanjhawala area on January 1 died due to injuries to her head, spine and lower limbs, the police said on Tuesday, PTI reported.

The police also said that an autopsy revealed that the woman, Anjali Singh, had not suffered any injuries suggestive of sexual assault. The postmortem examination was conducted at the city’s Maulana Azad Medical College.

In the early hours of Sunday, Singh met with an accident as her scooter was hit by a car. Her body was then dragged along by the car after she got entangled in its wheels. Her naked body was later found in Kanjhawala’s Jonti village.

The postmortem report has provisionally cited the cause of death as “shock and haemorrhage due to injury to the head, spine, left femur, both lower limbs”, NDTV reported. Special Commissioner Of Police Sagar Preet Hooda said that the final report will be received in due course.

“All injuries [were caused] by blunt force impact and possible with vehicular accident and dragging,” Hooda said. “Also, the report indicates that there is no injury suggestive of sexual assault.”

Meanwhile, Singh’s body was handed over to her family after the postmortem examination. “We have received her body,” her uncle said, according to PTI. “The final rites will be conducted on Tuesday evening in the Aman Vihar area. We saw the postmortem report and we are satisfied with it.”

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced a compensation of Rs 10 lakh for the woman’s family, and said that the government will appoint the best lawyer to argue the case.

“We will ensure justice,” Kejriwal said. “Her mother suffers from health problems. We will take care of her entire treatment. The government stands with the victim’s family. If there any need arises in the future also, we will fulfil it.”
