A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in Assam’s Hailakandi district for allegedly raping and killing a 6-year-old girl in his neighborhood. The boy’s father has also been arrested for supporting his son and trying to destroy evidence of the crime.
The incident happened at Sultanicherra area in Kathlicherra assembly constituency of Hailakandi district. The girl was missing since February 9 and her body was recovered on February 12.
According to the police, an initial investigation revealed that on February 9, the 6-year-old girl was playing with other children of the locality before she disappeared. The next day her body was recovered from a nearby forest area. According to the police, she was badly injured before she died. Police sent the body to Hailakandi Civil Hospital for post-mortem.
After the police started investigating the matter and under instructions of chairperson of the Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (ACPCR), Dr Sunita Chakraborty, a team from Guwahati reached Hailakandi and they took part in the investigation and interrogation.
A member of ACPCR, Ajoy Kumar Dutta said that they went to the houses of other children who were present when the girl disappeared. They spoke to family members and children separately. There were police officials in plain clothes present during the interrogation.
“We found a family behaving strangely and a boy was telling a lot of lies. It was also found that there were too many relatives staying in their house at that time which helped us to find a way to identify the criminal. It was a very smart move and ACPCR and police investigated the matter together and solved it within 24 hours,” Dutta said.
