HARIPUR: An elderly woman’s body was found floating in the left bank canal of the Khanpur Dam here on Friday morning.

The police said picnickers spotted the body in the canal and informed them, so the body was recovered with the help of rescue workers and shifted to the tehsil headquarters hospital for postmortem.

The police said initial investigation by doctors showed that the woman, who was in her 70s, would have slipped into the canal before being taken away by strong currents.

The doctors confirmed that the woman lost life by drowning in the canal.

The postmortem report was awaited from the forensic science laboratory.
