The Hush Post: The police has arrested a 32-year-old cab driver for the sexual assault and murder of a five-year-old child in Ghaziabad.
Accepting his involvement in the crime, the accused said that after smothering the child to death, he had stuffed it into a plastic bag and left it on the roof of her uncle’s house, adjacent to her own, in Khoda on August 4.
“The girl’s body was found in a decomposed state. Her legs had bruises and there were injury marks on her lips. Clothes on her lower body were not in order,” a police officer told The Hindustan Times.
The accused taxi driver, Deepak, belongs to Agra and was under the influence of liquor when he committed the crime, police sources said. He was a tenant of the child’s father. So much so, that he pretended to help in the search for the missing child, who was studying in L KG, since the night of August 2. He had fled before the bag containing the body was found by the police on August 4.
According to the news report, the Ghaziabad police reconstructed the crime scene and found bloodstains on the floor and the walls where Deepak was living. They also found a blood-stained bed sheet on the roof.
