Chandigarh, July 11

A man had filed a missing complaint with the police after his eight-year-old daughter, who was playing in a park in Andhra Pradesh's Nandyala district, did not return home.

Police launched a search and questioned locals, but could not find her.

The girl was allegedly molested and pushed into a canal by three minor boys, said a police official on Thursday.

According to the SP, a National Disaster Response Force team arrived on Thursday to search for the body.

He said it cannot ascertained whether the girl was raped until her body is found.

It was a sniffer dog that led police to the three boys, her seniors in school, who had allegedly molested her and then pushed her into the canal, reports NDTV.

The boys, in the age group of 12 to 13, have admitted to the crime. The three minors have been detained.

They told the police that they disposed of the body in the canal. Two of them are Class 6 students, aged 12, and one is in Class 7 and is 13.

They told police that they saw the girl playing in the park and joined her.

They then took her to a secluded area near the Muchumarri dam and took turns in molesting her. Worried that the girl may tell her parents, they threw her into the canal, the boys told police.

Sub-Inspector Jayshekhar of the Muchumarri police station said they are still looking at it as a missing case because the body of the girl has not been found.
