Jamshedpur: A three-year-old girl was allegedly raped and beheaded by two men after they abducted her from a platform of the Tatanagar railway station in Jharkhand, police said on Wednesday.
Police recovered the torso of the girl from some bushes in the Telco police station area on Tuesday night and sniffer dogs have been pressed into service to locate the head, Superintendent of Police (Railway) Ehtesham Waquarib said.
CCTV footage of the July 26 incident showed a man walking with the sleeping child in his arms. The man identified as Rinku Saha had recently been released from jail after doing time for kidnapping a child and attempting to kill her in 2015. Saha’s mother is a constable and she said her son was a repeat offender.
Police used the footage to nab three men, including the two believed to have raped and killed the toddler.
The 3-year-old’s mother, a divorcee, also reportedly told the police that she suspected her partner — with whom she was travelling from West Bengal’s Purulia — was also involved in the crime. He is the third person to have been arrested in the case.
