Kochi: Spine-chilling details are emerging into the brutal rape and murder of a five-year-old girl in Aluva last weekend. The autopsy report confirmed the little soul was subjected to cruel sexual assault before accused Asfaq Alam strangled her to death using her t-shirt.

A medical board of forensic experts has been formed after savage wounds, rarely found in a majority of rape-murder cases, were detected on the child’s body. The board is examining the autopsy reports and videos in detail.

The investigation team will submit before the POCSO Court, Ernakulam, the postmortem report and the findings of the medical board on Friday (Aug 4). 

The team will obtain the court’s nod and seek the help of the child’s mother in identifying the t-shirt used by the accused to suffocate her to death.

The police have also started efforts to find out why the accused murdered the child after sexually assaulting her.

According to initial leads, the accused did the heinous act alone and no other person was involved. They suspect that Asfaq Alam unsuccessfully attempted to kidnap the child on the previous day of the crime as well.

The scope of the probe has been expanded to Uttar Pradesh and Bihar after it was found that the accused committed similar crimes earlier.
