The residents of the area demanded a CID probe and also asked for the Officer-in-Charge of Bandwan police station’s resignation.
The victim’s family also faced police atrocities. According to reports, the cops refused to register a complaint following her kidnapping.
The 17-year-old girl who went missing on May 3 from Bandwan in Bengal’s Purulia was a student of Class XII and had scored over 95% marks in Madhyamik Examination.
The police have not yet recovered her school bag, purse and mobile phone.
A march was held on May 18 condemning the killing of the young girl. Protesters also demanded that a section of the media has been trying to hide the criminals.
