Hopes Of Tracing Six-year-old Girl’s Body Begin To Fade

BENGALURU : With an extensive search for the body of six-year-old who was murdered along with her two siblings on August 27 and later dumped in a manhole, failing to yield results, hopes of tracing her body have begun to fade. Despite putting in strenous efforts, the police and other government authorities have been unsuccessful so far.

On Thursday, the search team which began the search operation around 10 am, had to suspend it around 5.30 pm after officials from NDRF, BBMP BWSSB and Fire and Emergency Service Department failed to trace the body of Husna.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, District Fire Officer Manjunath said, “The officials carried out the search on a stretch of two-and-a-half km alongside the main canal connecting the storm water drain and the manhole where the accused had dumped the body. But there was no trace of the body. On Friday the team will use search cameras along with a thermal imaging camera fitted in a drone to carry out the search.”

Meanwhile, the police on Thursday interrogated Fayum again but the accused denied any sexual assault on the girl child. He told the police that he had pushed Abbas into the manhole first followed by Husna and then the youngest child. According to a senior officer, the triple murder case is by far the most brutal case the police have come across.

The search team on Monday night had fished out the body of 4-year-old Raheem Baig, the youngest sibling of Naziam Baig while the body of the elder son, Abbas Ali Baig was fished out Tuesday evening.
