The police have arrested two youths for allegedly murdering and raping a 12-year-old Dalit girl at Urlana village in Madlauda block of the district.

The body of the girl was found near a temple in the village early this morning.

A relative of the victim said that the girl was living with her maternal uncle since her birth and was studying in Class VI. She went to throw garbage around 5 pm yesterday, but did not return.

Some villagers found her naked body lying in an open area near the Balmiki temple and informed the family members and the police.

On getting information, Sandeep, SHO, Madlauda police station, along with forensic experts and dog squad reached the village.

Angry villagers demanded arrest of the accused and did not allow the police to take the body for a post-mortem examination.
