A 17-year-old girl, whose mutilated body was found near a village in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri district earlier today, was also raped, the police confirmed Tuesday night. The police had initially said the girl appeared to have been killed with a sharp weapon and that she had sustained injuries to her neck. The body was found near a dried-up pond, around 200 metres from her village, the cops added. "Yes, the post-mortem report has confirmed rape. We are making all possible efforts to identify and arrest the accused. We hope to have a breakthrough soon," Satendar Kumar, Kheri's police chief, said.
