Police said the body of the minor girl was allegedly killed after gang rape and on Sunday, the Sahibganj police sent her for medical examination and post-mortem. Police have also detained four people who were allegedly involved in the crime.
The incident came to light on Monday evening when the police visited the village in Pathana block under Ranga police station in Sahibganj district, about 400 km from the capital Ranchi, after receiving information about the incident through social media.
Police claimed that the girl’s family members had not lodged any formal complaint with the police even after being out of the house with one of their friends since last Wednesday. A friend of the deceased, who had been with him since Wednesday, told the whole story to the police. Based on his statement, the police filed an FIR late on Monday evening.
Superintendent of Police (SP), Sahibganj, Anuranjan Kisopta said, “As per the statement of the friend of the deceased, the two girls had gone to meet their lover on Wednesday. When they were returning on Friday night, five people from their village committed the crime, according to their friend’s statement. The body of the girl was found on Saturday and family members buried her on Sunday. ”
Police sources said the assailants dumped the body on the roof of an under-construction house in the village.
Sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) PK Mishra, who visited the village on Tuesday, said, ‘On the statement of the friend of the deceased, we have detained four youths of the village. Further action will be taken based on the medical report. ”
Mishra said that a medical board has been constituted by the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of Sahibganj and the body has been sent there.
Mishra said that the parents of the deceased, who are in their fifties, were not in a position to tell what happened to their daughters and where their daughter went last Wednesday.
However, BJP Legislature Party leader Babulal Marandi has alleged that the police is trying to cover up the incident.
He claimed, “The girl’s mother went to the Ranga police station to file a complaint, but she was returned to the panchayat saying that to resolve the issue.” After not getting any help from the police, they buried the body. ”
Marandi said that the incident took place in the assembly constituency of Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren. “When CM’s constituency is not safe, one can imagine what will happen in other parts of the state,” he said, demanding immediate action in the case.
Meanwhile, BJP Ranchi Mahanagar on Tuesday took out a candle march against the incident at Sahibganj at Albert Ekka Chowk in Ranchi.
