The body of a 65-year-old woman was found in a well at Kolshet in Thane (west) around 9 am on Wednesday, said an official from the regional disaster management cell (RDMC).

“We received information from the local police that some persons had spotted the body floating in the well. We reached the spot and had assistance from the Kapurbawdi police and the local fire department who had one fire rescue vehicle present at the spot,” Thane RDMC chief Avinash Sawant said.
