A nine-year-old girl’s body has been found with over 80 injuries, including some on her private parts in Surat Gujrat.
After a five-hour long postmortem, it was revealed that the girl was raped and tortured for at least eight days. She was later strangled to death, news gathering agency ANI reported.
Most injuries, it seems, were caused by a wooden weapon, the forensic head of the Civil Hospital in Surat said, adding the girl was finally strangled.
“On conducting a post-mortem, we found wounds on her body which were between one to seven days old. She had 86 external injuries on her body,” Civil Hospital forensics head Ganesh Govekar said.
The body was found by the police on April 6 at a ground in Surat’s Bhestan area, but the girl has not been identified yet.
“The body of the 11-year-old girl was found around 6 am near a road next to a cricket ground by people on their morning walk… We are trying to establish the identity of the girl,” police officer KB Jhala said. (Agencies)
