Greater Noida: The 14-year-old daughter of a Greater Noida-based doctor was found murdered at their house in sector 147 under Ecotech-III police station of Greater Noida on Tuesday.
Her family suspects that she was killed for resisting a robbery as the house belongings were scattered and cash worth lakhs was missing.
According to police, Sudarshan Bairagi, the doctor, who runs a clinic in sector 93 Gejha village under phase-II police station area, left his daughter alone at home and went to the clinic in the morning along with his wife and two children.
“When the family returned back around 1 pm, they found their daughter lying on the bed with a dupatta wrapped around her neck. Blood was coming out of her mouth and she was immediately rushed to Felix Hospital in sector 137 where she was declared brought dead,” said Anil Kumar Yadav, DCP (central Noida).
As per the girl’s father, about Rs 25 lakh that were kept at their house was missing. “Just a few days ago the family had sold a flat and in return got this money.
