New Delhi: The body of a seven-year-old girl who went miss­ing on Satur­day evening was found stuffed in a bag in the bushes with the limbs tied in outer Delhi’s Ni­hal Vi­har on Sun­day morn­ing.

DCP (outer) Seju P Ku­ruvilla said that a case of mur­der has been reg­is­tered. Po­lice are await­ing the au­topsy re­port to know the ex­act cause of death.

The girl’s fa­ther, who works as a driver, told po­lice that they last saw her on Satur­day evening when she went to have snacks at a nearby shop. When the girl didn’t re­turn by 9.30pm, they started a search and even asked their neigh­bours if they had seen her. They fi­nally sub­mit­ted a com­plaint at Ni­hal Vi­har po­lice sta­tion where an FIR of kid­nap­ping was reg­is­tered.

Even as po­lice were prob­ing the case, lo­cals spot­ted a body ly­ing in the bushes at 7.30am on Sun­day in a DDA plot. In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cers said that there were some in­jury marks on the body and the hands and legs were tied with a thin rope. A foren­sics team later col­lected sam­ples from the scene of crime.

The body was iden­ti­fied to be of the miss­ing child and sent to a hos­pi­tal for au­topsy. Sub­se­quently, the sec­tion of mur­der was added to the FIR. Po­lice sus­pect the child was mur­dered else­where and the body was dumped in the empty plot late at night. The body will be handed over to her fam­ily af­ter the au­topsy.

The in­ves­ti­gat­ing teams have also sought med­i­cal opin­ion to check if the child was sex­u­ally as­saulted. The fi­nal au­topsy re­port will re­veal the cause of death and the na­ture of in­juries sus­tained by the child, a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer said.

Po­lice are also scan­ning CCTV footage to as­cer­tain if some­one from the area was in­volved in the crime. The neigh­bours and shop­keep­ers in the vicin­ity are be­ing ques­tioned. Teams are also speak­ing to other chil­dren of the colony who may have seen the girl be­ing taken by some­body.

The par­ents of the vic­tim are be­ing quizzed to find out if they had any per­sonal en­mity with any­one or if they had been threat­ened prior to the in­ci­dent. A few peo­ple have been de­tained for ques­tion­ing.
