The state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has been directed to probe into the alleged rape and murder of a 13-year-old girl whose body was found in a river near Tungareshwar temple at Vasai, in neighbouring Thane district in August 2010.

A court on Wednesday transferred the investigation from Manikpur police station, Vasai, to the CID observing: “The CID should probe whether the girl’s death was an accident or an diabolic act of crime that was hushed up and shown to be an accident.”

The probe was transferred after the girl’s father filed a petition alleging foul play in his daughter’s death.
