Hazaribag: A 19-year-old girl, who went missing after she stepped outside her home in Romi village under Pelawal police station limits on the morning of September 2, was found hanging in a room of a Daltonganj house on Saturday. The teenager, a student of K B Women’s College, had told her family that she was going to college to submit her project. Three days later, the girl’s family learnt from police that she is dead.
“The girl’s brother Junaid Khan had lodged an FIR with Sadar police station on September 3 that his sister has gone missing. On Saturday, we received information from Daltonganj police that the girl was found hanging in a room of a house. Khan went to Daltonganj to bring back the girl’s corpse, where he filed another FIR,” Ganesh Prasad Singh, the officer in-charge of Sadar police station said.
In his FIRs, Khan mentioned a 21-year-old man as his sister’s kidnapper. The accused, when arrested, revealed that the duo eloped to get married as they belonged to separate communities. tnn
