Sagar : A 12-year old girl was kidnapped, gang-raped and murdered allegedly by her brothers and uncle in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar last week. Her body was found on the outskirts of the village.
The father of the girl filed a complaint with the police after she did not return home from school on March 13th. The very next day she was found murdered .
The police grew suspicious after her uncle alleged that one Chote Patel, who lives in the same village, was behind the murder. Patel and the girl’s family were locked in a land dispute, he told the police.
Alleging that the uncle tried to mislead investigators, senior officer Amit Sanghi said that the “postmortem and medical report revealed that the girl was raped”.
“Our two senior officers collected all evidence and recorded the statements of the family members. When everything was pieced together, we found that she was raped and murdered by her brothers and uncle. We arrested the uncle and one of the brothers,” said Mr Sanghi, adding that blood-stained clothes and the murder weapon – a sickle – was also found. The police are still in hunt for one of the accused brothers.
The police explained the incident as one of the brothers had taken her to the uncle’s place when she was returning home after exams. Then three men allegedly gang-raped her and when she threatened to inform to the police, her aunt allegedly strangled her, Mr Sanghi said. Later, the girl was beheaded and dumped in the fields.
