Shillong: The Meghalaya State Women's Commission on Tuesday said it had asked for a report from the state police on the unnatural death of a tribal woman inside a police station in Assam.

"We have sought a report from the police that deputed a team to the place where the incident took place. We are awaiting the report," Commission?s Chairperson Theilin Phanbuh told PTI.

Victoria Dayoun Kharkongor, a resident of Nongthymmai locality in the state capital, was found hanging inside the toilet of Dispur police station in Guwahati yesterday after she was taken there from a local hospital, according to Assam Police.

A police team deputed to the place of occurrence of the crime did not get much cooperation from the Assam police, Ri-Bhoi district Superintendent of Police G D Kharwanlang said.
