Pune: Step-father booked under POCSO for sexually assaulting and killing 15-year-old girl

The post-mortem report of the girl revealed that she was strangulated to death and possibly subjected to sexual assault.

In yet another horrific incident of sexual assault and murder, a 15-year-old teenage girl was allegedly raped and strangled to death in the Bhosari area of Pune by her step-father. The stepfather, who is suspected to have committed the crime is booked under POCSO and is currently on the run.

The complaint was registered by the victim’s mother, according to whom, she had a heated argument with her husband on Thursday morning following which he threatened her with dire consequences. The woman had then asked him to stay away from her daughters.

On Thursday evening, as per reports, the victim’s sister found her body at their home in Dapodi in Pimpri Chinchwad, an industrial town near Pune. When the deceased sister came to inquire upon her sister, she found the door closed from inside. After breaking open the door, the 15-year-old girl was found dead.
