Nagpur: In a shocking case, a teenaged girl was allegedly not only raped by her acquaintances but also murdered in Wardha, about 80km from here. The accused duo familiar with the girl picked her up from a location near Wardha railway station and headed towards an isolated place.

First, the duo criminally assaulted the girl turn by turn, even as she begged them to stop. Suspecting that she might reveal their names, they decided to eliminate her and one of them hit her on the head with a big stone. Not content with hitting her, the duo further tried to strangulate her but the cloth being used was torn. Finally, one of them brought a screwdriver from his motorbike and stabbed her multiple times. Only after they were completely sure that she was dead did they dump her body.

Since the girl was in the habit of visiting relatives without informing her parents, the latter waited for one whole day before lodging a complaint with the police. The police came to know during the investigation that the girl had been seen along with two boys on a motorbike near the railway station.

The accused were apprehended and after initial denials, they later confessed to their crime. The incident took place Sunday in Paloti near Sawangi Meghe and at Chawre layout and within eight hours, the accused were nailed.
