Relatives of 14-year-old Trishila Chaudhary, who was found dead under suspicious circumstances in Rajapur-6 on Thursday, have demanded an investigation be led into the case. They claimed the victim was abducted, raped and subsequently murdered.
The victim’s family members vented their ire as the police refused to register a rape and murder case against a local boy. Trishila’s uncle Narendra believes that a 15-year-old boy took her to his house three days before she was found dead. “The incident is suspicious; it should be investigated in an independent way,” he demanded. According to Narendra, both the victim and the accused are classmates of a local community school.
Postmortem of Chaudhary was conducted on Friday. But the postmortem and viscera reports are yet to come, said police.
The bereaved family have refused to receive the body stating that the police are reluctant to investigate the case. They claim that the police’s efforts are on to dismiss the case, stating it as a suicide.
Mitra Bahadur Acharya, inspector at the Area Police Office in Rajapur, said the accused was called at the police office for interrogation. “We will register the case after the postmortem and viscera reports,” he added.
