PESHAWAR: The body of a woman along with another woman, who was badly injured and lying in an unconscious state, was discovered on the Ring Road in Peshawar on Thursday.
The Paharipura police told The Express Tribune that they received a call from the Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) that two women had been brought to the hospital. One of them, who appeared to be 25 years-old was unconscious and badly injured while the other appearing to be a 19-year- old was dead.

The body has been sent for an autopsy while the injured women have been shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the LRH.
