Bhopal: In a shocking and ghastly incident, a ten-year-old girl in a Madhya Pradesh village was raped and then strangulated to death. Later, her body was dumped in an abandoned biogas tank, police said on Sunday.

Though the horrific incident took place in the village of Bariha in Katni district on February 28, it came to light late on Saturday night when a local spotted the body in the biogas tank.

“A local farmer spotted the legs of the victim protruding from the abandoned biogas tank in the village”, a senior district police officer said.

According to him, the girl was last seen being accompanied by her uncle, her neighbour, in the afternoon of February 28.

She was staying with her mother. Her father, a daily wage earner, used to visit their house every 15-16 days. Her mother had later enquired her uncle about her when she did not return home on February 28. But, her uncle said he thought she had returned home.

“Postmortem report of the body has suggested that the girl was raped and then murdered”, the investigating officer said. Police has registered a case against unidentified accused in connection with the incident.
