Mumbai: A minor girl was allegedly gangraped and murdered in Maharashtra's Ahmednagar district. The accused broke the hands and legs of the 15-year-old girl and then killed her.
Three suspects have been arrested and the fourth one is on the run. The trio have been charged under POCSO act and other IPC sections.
The victim had gone to her grandparents house on Thursday but she did not return home. Search parties were sent out who found her cycle near a farm. Later, they found her body in a farm.
DNA tests are being carried out and all forensic evidence has been gathered.
Ujjwal Nikam has been appointed as special public prosecutor in the case.
"I have conducted one serious case like the Shakti Mill gangrape case. The incident in Ahmednagar district is also very serious. The police are investigating the matter. The Chief Minister had requested me to act in this matter as the prosecuter and accordingly I will act as a prosector. It would be too premature to comment upon the sentences at the present. It will only depend on what type of evidence is collected by investigation agencies," Nikam said.
The case has now been raised by the Congress in the Maharashtra Assembly.
