Over 80 injuries over her body: 9 year old Surat victim identified
A family came to identity the nine year old girl, whose body was found nearby a Cricket ground in Surat. The mutilated body was covered with more than eighty wounds. The Forensic department concluded that she was raped, tortured with a wooden weapon and strangled to death.
The parents have undergone DNA tests and the results will soon confirm the identity of the child. Satish Sharma, Surat police chief stated that the parents reported their missing child since October last year in Andhra Pradesh. A missing case was filed within the district police but the parents never suspected that their child could be found so far from home.
Tweeted photos posted yesterday by Surat police allowed the parents to identify their missing girl. As no one came to identify the nine year old girl after ten days, the police decided to make a public appeal on Twitter.
Post-mortem revealed that the child was sexually abused and violated with a wooden object for days. She was then strangulated and smothered.
