Missing 'rape' victim found dead

A 17-year-old girl, who went missing from the house of her relative after lodging a complaint of rape against her boyfriend, found dead under mysterious circumstances at a village in the district, police said today.

The decomposed body of the girl, who went missing from her maternal uncle's house in Rambha village on December 15, was recovered from a well in the village last night, Jhallar police station in-charge Archana Jaat said.

The minor girl originally belonged to Palasseya village and had been staying with her maternal uncle from where she disappeared, she said.

Following the complaint, police had taken the boy into custody.

A case has been registered in this regard and investigations are on, she said.
