A 12-year-old girl in Sagar district, Madhya Pradesh was allegedly raped and then beheaded by her three brothers and uncle. Police have arrested the four accused including the neighbour who was the girl’s aunt for misleading the police.
The case was registered on March 13th when a missing report was lodged. Police very next day was able to trace the body in the field outside Berkhedi village. Cops also declared a reward for anyone who would give any information regarding the accused.
Police questioned her neighbour who also is the girl’s aunt but she misleads the cops by accusing a neighbour who already knew about the incident. As police interrogate the neighbour but he turned out to be innocent. They received a tip-off that the victim’s elder brother, who is around 20 years old, might be involved in the crime.
Since the elder brother was absconding, they questioned the younger one who is around 19-years-old and he confessed the crime. In interrogation, the brother confessed to raping and then murdering his sister along with his brothers and uncle.
Sagar’s superintendent of police Amit Sanghi informed Hindustan Times:
“It appears the elder brother had raped the victim earlier also. On that day everyone was out for work except the elder brother and taking advantage of this he raped his sister.”
Amit Sanghi added:
“While in the act, the other two brothers, including the minor, came and they both raped her. Meanwhile, the girl’s uncle, who is in his late forties, also came by. Initially, he scolded everyone and then he too raped her.”
When the girl threatened about reporting this to the police, they strangled her after which they cut off her head before dumping the body.
