Her body was recovered from a bush near the home
An 11-year-old girl has allegedly been killed after being raped in Tangail’s Madhupur upazila. Her body was recovered from the upazila’s Gachhabari village Friday night.
The victim, Liza, was a class five student of a local primary school.
Family sources said Liza went missing after she left home to take bath in a local river around 12pm on Friday. Around 9pm, the locals found her body covered with banana leaves in a bush near her home at Gachhabari.
Later, police reached the spot and took the body to the police station.
Police found injury marks on her body and neck, and blood on her vagina.
Tangail Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Shariful Haque said the victim’s body will be sent to Tangail General Hospital for autopsy.
“Primarily we are assuming the victim was killed after being raped. The matter will be clear once the autopsy report comes,” the ASP said.
Police are investigating the matter.
