A body of a four-year-old girl was recovered from a drain in the Khattak Colony of Kohat district, local police said on Thursday.
According to media reports, the victim was reportedly abducted a day earlier before being killed. The police suspected that the victim had also been raped.
The police sent her body for post mortem at the DHQ Hospital. According to the doctors, there were torture marks on the child’s neck and chest.
Police officials informed that a case had been registered in connection with the murder and an investigation was underway. The victim’s family staged a protest on Thursday and demanded justice.
However, whether it was a sexual assault or not, would be confirmed by the victim’s medical report which the police had not received yet.
