Shocking footage shows a three-year-old girl being abducted from a railway station as she was sleeping before she was allegedly gang-raped and beheaded by two men in India.
The girl, who was sleeping next to her mother, was picked up by a man in a T-shirt and shorts from the Tatanagar railway station in Jharkhand state’s Jamshedpur city last week.
After waking up and realising her daughter was gone, her frantic mother phoned the police, suspecting her partner as the culprit.
She told police she had left her husband and travelled to Jamshedpur from Purulia district in West Bengal with her new partner.
Police found the body of the girl, with the head missing, near the Telco police station area in Jamshedpur.
Her head has not been found.
Three men, including the two, believed to have raped and killed the little girl, have been arrested.
One of the alleged killers, Rinku Sahu, recently left prison after serving time for kidnapping a child and attempting to kill her in 2015.
Rinku and his friend Kailash, both in their thirties, allegedly told the police they gang-raped the child over a whole day and strangled her because she wouldn’t stop crying.
Police have also arrested Monu Mandal, who was with the child’s mother at the platform, believed to be her partner
Monu is being investigated for child trafficking, police said after CCTV footage helped them track down the suspects.
They say repeat offender Rinku, believerd to be a father-of-three is the one shown snatching the girl.
