A 12-year-old girl was kidnapped and murdered in Madhubani district of Bihar.
Nancy Jha, a resident of Mahadevgarh, was brutally murdered after miscreants poured acid on her body. Her burnt body was found lying next to the river bed on May 27.
According to her family, Nancy was kidnapped while she was returning from the mehendi ceremony of her aunt in the village.
On the fateful night of May 25, while coming back home from the ceremony, she was allegedly kidnapped by her neighbours, Pawan Jha and Laalu Jha. It is believed that Pawan Jha wanted to create a hindrance in the marriage of her aunt and, hence, hatched the plan of kidnapping Nancy.
Nancy’s father had lodged an FIR with the police but no action was taken. Things were brought to light by social media where some people claimed that she was allegedly raped before being killed.
The police have arrested the accused and postmortem report revealed that she was killed by strangulation.
