In yet another striking incident, half-burnt body of an eight-year-old girl, who had gone missing two days ago, was found at a vacant plot in Gulmarg colony, a few metres away from her house in Jalandhar, on Wednesday. The body was half-naked and her hands had been chopped off.
This happened a day after the body of a seven-year-old boy was found from the almirah of his neighbours in Malko village near Lambra.
On investigation, the police got hold of a CCTV footage from a nearby factory. Police said two migrants were captured dumping the body at the plot. They were taken into custody, said the police.
A forensic team was called on the spot.
Three years ago, the girl had been a victim of attempt to rape by a man in his 30s named Raman, who is now absconding.
