Body found with 86 injury marks
Amidst nationwide protest over the brutal gangrape and murder of a minor girl in J&K’s Kathua and an MLA from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was arrested in connection with a teenager’s rape, another similar incident has come to light from Gujarat’s Surat after city police confirmed rape on girl who was found dead with 86 injury marks earlier this month.
A sexual attack on an 11-year-old girl was reported on Sunday in Surat Gujarat.
Earlier this month, a girl’s brutalised body was found by a passerby lying in bushes in Surat’s Bhestan locality. Postmortem report revealed that the girl was kept confined for eight to ten days, tortured and sexually assaulted.
“The body was recovered by the side of a highway. The girl was sexually assaulted and murdered on April 5,” city’s police commissioner Satish Sharma told a news agency.
He added the victim — who was 11, has not yet been identified and that police from Gujarat’s neighbouring states have been asked to help trace her family.
