A blood-covered corpse of a minor girl was recovered from the Shadipur Shamshaan area of Lahutara Do Gram Panchayat in Karandighi, North Dinajpur today morning.
It is being suspected that the minor was raped before she was mutilated and killed. Her neck and the stomach bore wound marks that resembled those of a bladed weapon attack.
The corpse was first spotted by the locals in some bamboo bushes in the morning. The minor wore a school uniform, because of which it is being presumed that she was a school student.
The Karandighi Police was notified and they reached to send the corpse to the Raiganj District Hospital for the postmortem.
The minor, however, has not been identified yet. The police has commenced an investigation in the case.
