A 17-year-old girl was found murdered near her house in Shindegaon region of Chakan on Sunday afternoon.

Sheetal Waghmare left from home in order to use the nearby patch of land for defecation, said police sub-inspector (PSI) Shreedhar Waghmare.

The lower half of her body was naked, however, it could have been because she was defecating, the officer added.

Her father Balaji Waghmare, who is a mason worker, went looking for her after she failed to return home and found her body at 2 pm around 500 meter from their rented house.

She was alone as her mother was at her native village, Chakur in Latur, since the past week. Her brother, Laxman Waghmare, who works as a contract labourer, was out on an off day. The deceased girl had stopped studying after failing Class 10 and hardly had friends, said sub inspector Jadhav.

The girl had three injury marks on her body including two on her neck and one on her cheek. Medical reports are awaited to decide whether the girl was sexually assaulted.

The deceased girl’s mother returned from Chakur and on Monday morning, her body was taken to the village for last rites, said PSI Jadhav.
