A 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped and then murdered at Dharmanagar in North Tripura district, police said on Monday.

The girl, a student of Class 9, received a phone call from a known person on Saturday evening and left her house, superintendent of police Manik Das told reporters. Dharmanagar is about 220 km from state capital Agartala.
