The girl’s father has lodged a complaint in the local police station. “We have made a few arrests but the real culprit is absconding,” said Jitendra Rane, incharge of Inchauli police station.
The victim went to school in morning but didn’t return home. Later, her semi-naked body was recovered from the jungle, the police said. According to the postmortem report, the girl was strangled to death after the rape.
This is the third instance of crime reported in the city within a week. On November 20, a silver merchant, Riyazuddin, was abducted from Nandvihar colony and later his mutilated body was recovered from the railway track in Maliana. His family created a ruckus at the Delhi Gate police station following which a case of abduction and murder was lodged against seven persons. But no arrests have been made so far.
On November 19, six armed robbers attacked the wife and mother of an employee of the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court, but the police have so far failed to make any arrests in this connection.
