The autopsy report of a teenaged girl who was found dead in Sonarpur area of Chopra Assembly Constituency in North Dinajpur district of West Bengal has revealed that there were no signs of physical or sexual assault, police said.

There is no mention of any kind of injury or any attempt of sexual advances, sources in the district said.

The autopsy report, however, confirmed that the death of the 15-year-old girl was due to consumption of poison. There were no marks of any physical injury on the body of the girl, the report added. A mobile phone and a few bottles of poison were also recovered from the spot, police said.

The alleged rape and murder of the 15-year-old in West Bengal’s Sonarpur in Chopra assembly constituency had triggered furore among locals and political leaders in the state.

The family of the teen, meanwhile, claimed that the girl was gang-raped and murdered.

The victim’s elder sister had earlier said, “My sister went missing since night. After looking for her the entire night, we finally found her body near a banyan tree in the morning. There was poison in her mouth. She was raped. We are suspecting that five men, who were looking for her yesterday, had murdered her.”

Following the incident, the BJP leaders had accused the Trinamool Congress (TMC) of creating an “environment of terror” in the state. Her body was found near a banyan tree in Sonarpur area.

The BJP had claimed that the teen was related to one of their karyakartas, while the party added that massive protests will be held across the state.

The suspected rape and subsequent murder of the girl had on Sunday triggered protests in the area with a mob blockading National Highway 31 and setting ablaze government buses and police vehicles, demanding the arrest of the culprits.

Police detained three people so far on allegations of damaging public property.
