A six-year-old girl, Rani, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Shanti Nagar in Gyaspura area Saturday. Although the girl’s mother, Sunita, told the police that Rani died after she fell from a flight of stairs, the police suspect a conspiracy.
The police directed the health authorities to constitute a two-member board of doctors to conduct the post-mortem. The police said they were probing all angles and that the victim’s neighbours claimed that Sunita was in an illicit relationship after having turned away her husband from their residence a few months back.
A relative of the victim informed the father, Rajesh Kumar, who works at a factory. Focal Point police station SHO Harjinder Singh said the post-mortem report was awaited to confirm the cause of death.
