Harda, MP, May 23 UNI | 2 months ago

The body of a ten-year-old girl -- who went missing on Wednesday after coming to a relative's place in Kachbaidi village -- was found today, police said. The minor was sexually assaulted and murdered.

A wedding party arrived in Kachbaidi two days back and some youths in that group kidnapped the child whose kin lodged a missing complaint.

The corpse was seized from a farm near the village when a young man in an auto-rickshaw was going to dispose it.

The accused was identified as Dewas District's Khategaon town-resident Totaram who was caught by locals, thrashed and handed over to police.

The body was sent for postmortem.
