April. 16 (ANI): The Surat police has registered a case against two people for "spreading false news" by sharing a photo of the dead body of a girl from Gujarat, claiming that an Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) linked person raped her.

The girl has not been identified and her body has not been claimed yet, reported India Today. The Forensic Science Laboratory team has collected samples and will conduct tests to ascertain if she was sexually assaulted before being murdered. Considering the gruesome nature of the case, the Crime Branch of the Surat police has been asked to take over the investigation.

The body of the unidentified girl was found near a cricket field in Bhestan area of Surat on April 6.

The police are now scanning the list of the missing persons to establish girl's identity and to find out details about her family. It appeared that most injuries were caused by a wooden weapon. "The victim's picture has been sent to the state police control room for identification process", Police inspector B.K. Jhala told news agency ANI.

As there are no signs of struggle available at the site from where the body was recovered, police believe that she could have been killed somewhere else and then dumped at the place. A reward of Rs 20,000 has been announced for anyone providing information about the girl or her family.

The police have registered a case under Sections 302 (murder) and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code and provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

The government has been targeted by the Opposition, along with the civil society, over the rape cases in Kathua and Unnao - where an 18-year-old was allegedly gangraped by a local MLA and his accomplices. I want to assure that no culprit will be spared, complete justice will be done. Police suspect that she had been held captive, tortured and raped over a period of time. However, the gory details of the crime were revealed when a charge sheet in the case was filed last week, triggering a massive outcry against the horror faced by the minor girl.
