Chennai: A four-year-old child was found dead in her bathroom on Thursday evening in Chennai’s Thirumullaivoyal, Tamil Nadu. But what was horrific was that the child’s body was stuffed inside a plastic rice bag and dumped inside a bucket of water.
Based on preliminary investigation, the police suspect that the child was sexually assaulted before the murder.
