Even as the country reels from the brutality of the two rapes in Unnao and Kathua, another incident has been reported from Gujarat’s Surat where a minor girl was raped, killed and left in a cricket field near the city’s Bhestan area.

The post-mortem of the body revealed that the girl was raped and tortured for at least eight days before being strangled to death, according to The Free Press Journal. It appeared that most injuries were caused by a wooden weapon.

The girl has not been identified and her body has not been claimed yet, reported India Today. The police are checking the list of missing persons to identify the girl. The identities of those who committed the crime are unknown as well.

Ganesh Govekar, forensic head, Civil Hospital, told ANI, “The girl’s body had 86 injury marks including on her private parts. Samples have been taken for forensic test to ascertain whether she was drugged or not.”

Police inspector BK Jhala said, “Even after eight days, the parents of the girl are yet to be identified. The police also believe that she was murdered somewhere else and the dead body has been thrown here. The victim’s picture has been sent to the state police control room for identification process,” said the ANI report. He further added that a reward of Rs 20,000 has been announced for anyone providing information about the girl or her family.

Meanwhile, Unnao rape case accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was sent to seven-day CBI custody by a special CBI court on Saturday, while the medical examination of the 17-year-old victim was conducted at a hospital in Unnao earlier that day.
