Minor raped and murdered in Surat

Tribal girl abducted repeatedly raped for over 2 weeks in Surat

Amid nationwide outrage over the gang rape and murder of an eight-year-old in Kathua, Surat police told TOI on Sunday that an 11-year-old, whose body was found about 10 days ago, had been raped, tortured and strangled to death. Gujarat Police today recovered the body of an 11-year-old girl from Surat.

"The body was found around 6 am near a road next to a cricket ground by people on their morning walk".

"We have circulated her pictures through the print and social media as well as WhatsApp, hoping someone would identify her", inspector K.B. Jhala, attached to Pandesara police station, said.

Ganesh Govekar, Forensic Head, Civil Hospital, said, "The girl's body had 86 injury marks including ones on her private parts".

The brutal incident from prime minister Narendra Modi's home state comes even as protests are raging across the country over Kathua and Unnao rape cases.

In the Kathua case, the police charge sheet says the girl from the Bakarwal nomadic tribe was kidnapped, held in a temple in Kathua's Rasana village, drugged, repeatedly raped and then murdered to scare her community out of the neighbourhood.

Surat Police Commissioner Satish Sharma, briefing on the incident, said on Sunday announced a reward for anyone who provides information about the victim or her family.

The police commissioner said the investigation has been handed over to the city police's Crime Branch and all efforts are being made to identify the girl.

The police officer added that a case of rape has been registered under the matter and the unidentified accused has also been booked under The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POSCO).

Sharma said that probably the girl could belong to either Orissa or West Bengal and hence more focus is being given to zero-in on the identities of girls missing from these states. "There was no sign of struggle at the spot where the body was found".

"1200 posters have been posted across Surat for identification of girl". The Forensic Science Laboratory team has collected samples and will conduct tests to ascertain if she was sexually assaulted before being murdered.

In another case of rape of a 17-year-old girl in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, the CBI on Friday arrested BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, hours after the Allahabad High Court ordered his immediate arrest saying he was influencing the "law and order machinery".
