The body of a 65-year-old woman was found eaten by stray dogs in her house in Mavelikara in Kerala on Wednesday.

The police assume that the fire caught from the kitchen might have led to her death as half of her body was burnt. The incident took place last week and it came into people's notice when stray dogs were seen wandering around her house.

The locals then conducted a search and found out the body lying in her house, partially eaten up by dogs. The neighbours said they were not aware of her death as no suspicious smell smoke was noticed.

The Mavelikara police have prepared the inquest and initiated an investigation.
