Teen rape incident: Body of suspected abductor found
Chandigarh: The Haryana police on Wednesday said the body of a 19-year-old youth, who was named in the FIR as the alleged abductor in the savage rape-and-murder case of a 15-year-old Dalit girl from a village in Kurukshetra district, Haryana, has been found in a canal near Jyotisar.
The body was found late on Tuesday night from the Bhakhra canal.
Police said the body of the Class XII student was found in a decomposed condition and was identified by his parents from a tattoo on his arm.
Police had earlier launched a hunt to nab the accused who is alleged to have abducted the girl from Kurukshetra when she went to attend a tuition class. The youth had been named as the alleged abductor in a complaint lodged by the girl's family after the teenager had gone missing last week from her village in Kurukshetra after leaving home to attend a tuition class.
"On the complaint of the girl's parents, we were treating the youth as a suspect for kidnapping. His body was found yesterday night from a canal near Jyotisar. Though there were no visible injury marks, the postmortem will reveal the exact cause of his death," Kurukshetra SP, Abhishek Garg said over phone.
