A four-year-old girl was raped and her body dumped in a well, the police said on Monday. The body of the girl was found from a well in Naugoan last week, but the post-mortem later revealed that the child had been raped too.
“The incident took place between May 28 and 29, most probably at night. The body of the four-year-old girl was found in a well on May 29 morning. The post-mortem report has revealed the girl was subjected to sexual assault and was later killed,” a senior Chhatarpur police officer was quoted as saying by a news agency.
The in-charge of the police station of the area has been suspended for alleged laxity in investigation, the agency reported. Senior police officials are at the crime spot and cops have announced a reward of Rs 10,000 for information about any of those involved in the crime.
