A minor girl in Karnataka was raped and then murdered allegedly by his neighbour, officials have said.
Her body was recovered from a sugarcane field in Karnataka's Kalaburagi last evening with multiple injuries, according to the police.
The 15-year-old girl had gone out to answer nature's call yesterday. When she did not return home, her family started searching for her and also informed the police.
She was later found dead at the sugarcane field on the outskirts of the village.
Police said they have arrested her 16-year-old neighbour and investigation is underway.
"A case has been registered under charges of rape and murder," they said.
