A 12-year-old hearing and speech-impaired girl was allegedly raped and killed by her cousin in Deesa town of Gujarat’s Banaskantha district, police said on Saturday.

“Prima facie, it appears that the 12-year-old girl was raped and then murdered by the accused identified to be her cousin. The body was sent for post-mortem and the report is awaited,” the official said.

The victim’s 25-year-old relative has been detained for questioning, he said, adding that the case is being investigated by Dantiwada police.
