A 13-year-old girl has been raped and killed in the Uttar Pradesh district of Lakhimpur Kheri, India, on Friday, August 14, 2020.
The girl went missing on Friday afternoon and was finally found dead in a sugarcane field. Her eyes were reportedly gouged out according to her father’s claims.
The Police confirmed that the girl’s body was discovered in a sugar cane field near the Nepalese border and said a autopsy showed signs of rape and strangulation.
However, the Police debunked claims made by the girl’s father, as reports shows that her eyes and tongues were not missing.
According to the superintendent of Police in Lakhimpur, Satendra Kumar, said;
“Her eyes were not gouged and tongue was not cut. The claim is not true.There is nothing in the post-mortem report to suggest this. There were scratches near the eyes, likely due to the sharp sugarcane leaves where the body was found. The girl’s post-mortem has confirmed rape”
