Around 7.30am, the girl's mother woke up and could not find her daughter next to her. "After a search of few minutes, the girl's body was found nearby — off the Western Express Highway. Her body has been sent for an autopsy. We are probing if she was raped prior to her death," said an officer at Kasturba Marg police station.
The police said the girl was abducted by an unidentified man in the early hours of Sunday, while she was sleeping next to her mother. The police are scanning the CCTV footage to understand the sequence of events.
