Teenager Found Beheaded, Burnt In Meghalaya; Father ArrestedGARO HILLS, MEGHALAYA: A 15-year-old girl who had been missing for over a week in Meghalaya, was found dead in a jungle on Sunday night, beheaded and burnt. Her father has been arrested.

The police say the girl, who was found without clothes, may have been raped. Her mother, who complained against her own husband, alleges that he sexually assaulted his daughter.

Her father had reported her missing. He had claimed that he took the girl to a doctor in Williamnagar town and sent her home in an auto. He returned home separately, saying he had some work at the market.

When the girl did not reach home for hours, he went to the police and filed a missing report.

Days later, the girl’s mother filed an FIR or police complaint against her husband.

After the girl’s body was found, a second complaint was registered under a law on sexual crimes against children and her father was arrested.

The inquest report says the state of her body, which was found in the Garo Hills area, indicates that she may have been raped before she was killed.

Police are waiting for a post mortem report.
