Giving more information about the case, Aligarh Senior Superintendent of Police Muniraj said that at around 6 pm on Sunday evening police was informed that the body of a 17-year-old girl has been found lying in the field. Following the information, the SHO, along with his police team reached the spot. He was soon joined by other police personnel including 5 station house officer (SHO) and 2 Circle Officers (CO).

Yesterday, SSP Muniraj had informed that the deceased had left her home at around 10-11 am to collect fodder for the cattle in the fields from where she went missing. The family and villagers began looking for her when she didn’t return home until 4 in the afternoon. Later they found her body in a field.

It was reported that when the police team reached the spot and tried to take the body for post-mortem, angry villagers blocked their way by setting fodder on fire and also attacked by pelting stones at them. The SHO of the Gangiri police station Pranendra Kumar was reportedly injured in the attack.
