AGRA/ FIROZABAD: The naked body of a dalit teenage girl was found inside the toilet of a private primary school of Nidhauli Kala village of Narkhi police jurisdiction in Firozabad district. Identified as Pooja Valmiki, the 16-year-old victim, who is claimed to mentally challenged and was often found alone in the lanes of village. She was missing since Saturday evening.

According to Pradeep Yadav, station officer of Narkhi, “On Tuesday afternoon, students spotted the girl’s body in the dilapidated toilet. We have sent the corpse for post-mortem, once we find out the actual cause of death, we will file an FIR in the matter.” A staff of the school claimed, “There were no clothes below the waist of the victim’s body, and the kurti was torn above. In fact, it seem that person who killed the girl had poured acid on her face to destroy her identity.”

“After the construction of new toilets, none of the students used the old one. The dilapidated toilet was abandoned. Since the school boundary wall is broken in parts, the killer must have entered and thrown the body in an old toilet,” added a staff member. The victim’s parents identified Pooja from her clothes. Vijendar Valmiki,father of the victim alleged rape and murder. “My daughter was raped and then killed. We want the culprits to be arrested soon,” he said.

According to Prempal Singh, uncle of the victim, “Pooja went missing since Saturday and we kept searching for her. We even considered filing a police complaint, but since there were no photo of her, we couldn’t.”
