A 20-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly raping and killing the three-year-old daughter of his neighbour the previous evening in Shamli district. He later allegedly hid the body in a cupboard in his house.
Parents of the victim worked as contract labourers. When they returned in the evening, they couldn’t find their daughter anywhere. “Some local residents told them that they had seen the girl going with Lakshman to his house at around 3 PM on Tuesday,” said Om Prakash, in-charge of Garhipukhta Police Station. When cornered, Lakshman allegedly showed them the body in the cupboard. He was handed over to police later. “The body has been sent for the postmortem,” said the officer.
