No FIR was registered by police after a brutal incident of rape and murder of a nine-year-old girl in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh.

At 10:30 pm, after much pleading, Dev Singh went to the victim’s residence along with other police personnel.
The police stayed at the victim’s residence for a while, but the victim’s father alleged that the team of police left without even searching for the nine-year-old victim.
Only after some local authorities intervened in the matter, the police were alarmed and started to search for the victim. The probe in the matter has also been initiated.
The body was later found near a drain outside the victim’s house. The police have announced a reward of Rs 20,000 on the accused and 20 teams have been formed to nab the accused.

The nine-year-old victim’s body had blade marks on the face.
