PUDUCHERRY: The nine-year-old girl, who was reported missing just two days ago, was found dead in a roadside drain on Wednesday. The hands and legs of the girl were seen tied in one ghastly crime that shocked Puducherry. Four people, including two minors, have been detained in the incident. The police informed that a detailed investigation was going on.

Aarti, a nine-year-old girl who was playing outside her house suddenly went missing just two days back. The locals are parents foraged the locality but it yielded no results. This forced the parents to register a complaint with the Muthialpet police station.

The police investigation of the past two days found crucial evidence, and on Thursday, the body was found wrapped in a bed sheet in a drain very near the girl’s house. The CCTV footage amounted to nothing as it showed only the child playing on the road but nothing else.

The police are waiting for the autopsy report to further clarify about possible sexual molestation. However, the preliminary information confirmed that the girl was sexually molested before getting killed. The deceased class 5 student is the daughter of the driver of the primary health centre.

The locals in the area have staged a strong protest, and are also demanding a CBI inquiry into the murder. Former MLA Vaiyapuri Manikandan has submitted a petition to Chief Minister N Rangasamy raising this demand.
