A 55-year-old woman was today found dead at her residence in Noida with her throat slit, police said.
Umesh Kumari, a resident of Sector 108, was alone at her house when the incident happened. The victim was living with her sons.
Her body was found by a group of labourers working nearby after they saw an unidentified man suspiciously escaping from the house, police said.
Police have ruled out robbery as the motive behind the murder since jewellery and other goods were found intact.
Some persons have been detained for questioning, they said.
