- The girl's decomposed body was found under a bed in her neighbour's house
- The 6-year-old had gone missing on Thursday evening
- The police are on a lookout for the suspect
Anil joined one of the many search parties for the child when she went missing on Thursday. He vanished soon after. On Sunday night, he allegedly called neighbours asking them to switch off the lights and fans in his house and that was when the body was discovered.
"We all started looking for her and after a while even the uncle from the house came out and searched for the girl. We searched in many places but even after four days we couldn't find her," said Rahul.
Arshita, another neighbour, said the girl was last seen playing alone around 6 pm and it was raining.
"The girl was the only one playing because of the rain. The power went off. It was then that he must have dragged her into his house," she told NDTV.
Arshita alleges that Anil told people he didn't know where the child was.
"Then he called us on the phone and asked us to switch off the lights and fans that he had left on in his house. Two hours after we switched off the main switch, we started getting a foul smell. We opened the window and then called the police who gave us permission to open his house. We opened the door and saw that the child was dead and there was blood all over the place," she said.
