Jamshedpur horror: In what was comes as shocking news to all the citizens across the country, a headless body of three-year-old was found to be missing. Is India the safest country for women? People are really starting to doubt it.
The CCTV footage assisted in the identification and with the help of this clue, the accused was finally arrested.
It was learnt that the girl had gone missing last week and torso of the deceased was sent for post-mortem examination for further results. Police also suspect that the child was brutally raped and tortured because there are injury marks on her private parts and the head of the child is yet to be discovered.
The accused Rinku who is the son of a havildar is a repeat offender and have also been arrested and convicted earlier for abducting and killing children.
To make things worse, Rinku who is now in police custody, is a repeat offender and had also been arrested and convicted earlier for kidnapping and murdering children in Telco and Sakchi areas but still, no stringent action was taken against him. In fact, he is a son of a havildar posted in Giridih district police.
“Rinku was earlier convicted and sentenced to a two-year jail term for abducting with the intention to kill a seven-year-old child from Jemco-Azadbasti locality on April 9, 2015. He was sentenced to a two-year jail term in March 2018. He came out of jail a weeks ago,” the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Noor Mustafa Ansari told Hindustan Times.
It was on Thursday that the three-year-old child was abducted when she was sleeping with her mother at the railway station.
At that time, Rinku can be seen walking away with the sleeping child according to the CCTV footage. The police who scanned the footage caught him and his associate Kailash on Monday.
The body of the child was finally recovered from bush near Dhobi Ghat in Ramadhin Bagan.
The DSP Ansari further explained: “We recovered the headless body of the girl from the bushes in Ramadhin Bagan Tuesday night after Rinku revealed that he had dumped her body and told us the location.
We took him along with us and found the headless body though he has been insisting that he didn’t behead the victim but admitted to killing her. She had injury marks on her private parts, indicating rape but we are awaiting post mortem report.”
