Body of 11-year-old girl found in Surat injuries on her private parts

The dead body of the minor girl was discovered in Surat amid the widespread anger against rape of a 17-yerar-old girl in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh and rape and murder of 08-year-old girl in Kathua, Jammu & Kashmir.

The body of the girl, believed be in the age group of 9 to 11 years, was spotted lying in bushes in a cricket ground in the locality on April 6 by some passersby, who informed police.

The Gujarat Police had announced an award of Rs 20,000 for providing any information about the girl.

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

According to the news from Pandesara area located in Surat, the real identity of the victim is still not known but the child is 11 years old.


Sharma also said that photos and all available details of the deceased girl has been sent to all the Superintendent of Police (SPs) of the state to identify the victim. Her body bore 86 injury marks, including in private parts.

The Surat police have not been able to establish the identity of the girl in more than a week after the discovery of her body.

Meanwhile, police have registered a case of rape and also booked the unidentified accused under The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. "Samples have been taken for forensic test to ascertain whether she was drugged or not".

The rapes and murders in Kathua and Unnao on the other side have been sparked shock and indignation across the whole nation. Police still haven't been able to identify the girl or her parents, but suspect she was murdered somewhere else and dumped near the ground. Stating that the crimes have jolted the country, PM Modi said, "As a country, as a society, we all are ashamed of it (rapes)". I want to assure that no culprit will be spared, complete justice will be done. The accused, who was from her same tribal village, let her go after two weeks and threatened her against telling anyone. "Case has been handed over to crime branch", Sharma said. "The girl was subjected to severe torture before being killed", a police official was quoted as saying by Times of India.
