The mother of Deepali, who was missing since June 2006 and whose name was mentioned in the complaint lodged in December that year about the children missing from the area, had identified her daughter through her footwear.
A total of 19 cases were filed in connection with the rape and murder of children and a young woman in Nithari in 2006 and the CBI filed chargesheets in 16 cases. Three cases were closed without trial due to lack of evidence.
