According to police, the incident took place at 8 am. The girl’s father said she was playing on the pavement when she dropped her toy on the main road. The girl stepped on the road to pick up her toy when the accused ran her over. “I heard a loud sound. When I went to check, I found her body… Her head was severed,” said the father.
