Panchkula, July 28

The local police have been unable to find the car in which the 10-year-old girl, who was later found murdered, left her house in Power Colony in Sector 19 here with her father on July 17 afternoon.

The girl’s body was found at the Bandar Ghati stretch near the dumping ground in Sector 23 in the morning of July 18, making her missing father the prime suspect in her murder. However, the girl’s father was also found dead on a railway track in Zirakpur on July 19.

Sequence of events

  • The body of a girl was first spotted on July 18 by a police official on PCR duty
  • Based on his complaint, the police registered an FIR under Sections 302 and 201, IPC, at the Chandimandir police station
  • On July 19, the girl's father, the prime suspect in the case, was found dead on railway tracks

Chandimandir SHO Inspector Arvind Kumar said their investigation into the crime was at a crucial juncture; hence, they could not reveal the details that may hamper their efforts to solve the case. He added that they would crack the case soon.

The post-mortem report of the girl had confirmed sexual assault before murder by strangulation.

“The girl’s body had 12 injuries. The child also had injuries on private parts. However, it is subject to confirmation of samples from a forensic lab in Madhuban,” a source in the Health Department had told Chandigarh Tribune.

Police officials said now they were waiting for a report of the forensics for the confirmation of rape.
