A 17-YEAR-OLD girl was found stran­gled to death at her house in Dha­yari area off Sin­hagad Road here, po­lice said.

The in­ci­dent took place on Thurs­day, they said, adding that her post­mortem has in­di­cated that she was also sex­u­ally as­saulted.

“The vic­tim’s brother came home from school in the af­ter­noon on Thurs­day and found his sis­ter ly­ing un­con­scious. He im­me­di­ately in­formed his par­ents, who were away from home at that time. They work as labour­ers,” he said.

Her fa­ther then called their neigh­bour, who works as a nurse and asked her to rush to their place and check what has hap­pened.

“Af­ter check­ing the girl’s pulse, the woman rushed her to a pri­vate hos­pi­tal, where doc­tors de­clared her brought dead,” Bod­khe said.

A case of ac­ci­den­tal death was reg­is­tered with Sin­hagad Road po­lice sta­tion and the body was sent for au­topsy.
