A 22-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped, forced to drink acid and later strangulated to death in Baheri area here, the police sources said on Monday.


The victim's body was recovered from a field in Aithpura village on Saturday with her face mutilated, they said, adding her postmortem report, which was received on Monday, found that she was gang-raped and later strangulated.

The police said that acid was detected from the stomach of the victim, which indicated that she was forced to drink it before being murdered.
Her face was mutilated by pouring acid and petrol to conceal her identity, they added.

Senior sub-inspector of police (SSP) J Ravindra Gaur said there was a possibility of the victim hailing from Uttarakhand, and therefore a team has been dispatched there for investigation.

Deputy SP Baheri Kalu Singh said the police was investigating on several aspects. It is being suspected that it could be a case of honour killing or could be related to flesh trade, he said.
