The police are waiting for the autopsy report to know if the girl was raped. The woman reportedly told the police that she saw the accused fleeing and found the girl lying in a pool of blood. The girl and the man, Sonu, came together to the guesthouse, she reportedly said. When she asked the man for an identity proof, he said he would give it to her later, the woman reportedly told the police, who said they were verifying her claims.
“The accused confessed to the murder. He wanted to marry the girl but she wanted to wait for her elder sisters to get married,” SHO Anil Kumar said.
As the news spread on Friday, a large number of protesters blocked the roads leading to National Highway 5, demanding death for the accused.
