Srinagar, Apr 8 (UNI) The body of Haunge Sui Chin, a tourist from Taiwan who had gone missing on March 22 afternoon, was recovered from the Nigeen Lake here this morning, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Farooq Ahmed said.
Haunge's daughter Resdenda Chin, who had arrived here on April 1 along with a friend to trace her mother, identified the body, Mr Ahmed told UNI.
The DIG said there were no external wounds on the body.
''Apparently, it appears that she must have drowned in the lake.
The body seems to have been in the water for a long time,'' he added.
Mr Ahmed said the body has been sent to the police hospital for a post-mortem.
A three-member board of doctors, headed by government medical college principal Ashiq Hussain Naqshbandi, has been constituted for conducting the post-mortem, he added.
