A 24-year-old man abducted the five-year-old daughter of his employer, allegedly raped and strangled her and dumped the body in a container at his house in Faridabad’s Palwal district on Thursday.

On Thursday evening, police received information about a five-year-old having been abducted by one Bhola alias Virender of the same village.

When police reached the village, the child’s family members said Bhola, 24, who worked in their sweet shop, left around 1.30pm on Thursday on the pretext of dropping their child home.

But neither he nor the child could be traced till late in the evening.

The family members told police that some village elders went to check Bhola’s house, where he was present. “When someone checked a large container, they found the child’s body inside,” an investigating officer said.

The villagers then called the police. “The body was in a semi-naked condition with stab wounds,”a senior police officer said.

An FIR under section 302, 201, 365, 376D, 34 of the IPC and 6 POCSO was registered against Bhola at Sadar police station in Palwal on Thursday.

During interrogation, Bhola told the police that he did not get along with his employer. Police were questioning him to know what prompted him to kill the child.

“The body was handed over to the family after post-mortem on Friday for last rites,” superintendent of police, Palwal Wasim Akram, said. “The medical report confirmed rape,” he said.

“Bhola is married but his wife was not living with him for the last two years,” a police official said, they were probing the role of a few other men seen in CCTV footage.
