Though police suspected that more people were involved in the crime, Asfaq claimed that he committed the crime alone.

The accused is currently lodged in the Aluva sub-jail.

According to police,  Asfaq is addicted to porn and used to quarrel with people after getting drunk.

The accused, who was the child’s neighbour, abducted her on Friday after luring her with a promise of getting juice, police said.

Police nabbed him in an inebriated state on Friday after launching a probe into the complaint filed by the child’s parents. Initially, he told the police that he had sold the girl to another man and received the money. But further interrogation confirmed that he had killed the girl after sexually assaulting her. 

Police recovered the five-year-old girl’s body from an abandoned area near Aluva market on Saturday morning.
