In what could possibly be a revenge killing, a five-year-old girl was murdered by a woman, who police believe to be her father’s ‘lover’.
On March 24, the child went missing from Nalasopara near Mumbai. The police started looking for her after her parents filed a complaint. The child’s body was found three days later, on March 27, in a toilet in Gujarat’s Navsari district.
The police claim a woman, Anjali Baghela, in her mid-twenties, was in a relationship with Santosh Saroj, the little girl’s father for last six years but when he refused to marry her, the woman killed the child.
CCTV footage of the locality in Nalaspora gave a vital clue, say police. The footage showed a woman taking the child out of the house on the pretext of giving her chocolates. The child never came back after that say police. More CCTV footage from Nalaspora railway station showed the woman boarding a train with the child. A message on the mobile phone of Santosh helped police pick up the trail.
