Agra: The body of a 6-year-old Dalit girl, who was sexually assaulted before being murdered, was found in Police Lines, Mainpuri, on Friday.
The girl had been missing since Thursday afternoon and her parent had lodged a complaint of kidnapping after she didn't return from school.
Taking to TOI, Mainpuri superintendent of police Rajesh S said the girl's body bore cut marks around the neck and there was a strong possibility that she had been sexually assaulted. "However, a postmortem would confirm the cause of death," he said.
The SP added that a medical panel of three doctors has been formed for conducting the post mortem. "Investigations are on. Someone could have disposed of her body in the Police Lines as some passages were open," he added.
