Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa Wednesday said the CB-CID was investigating into the death of a minor girl who was allegedly murdered near Tiruchirapalli two months ago.
Replying to a query raised by M H Jawahirullah of Manithaneya Makkal Katchi in the Assembly, Jayalalithaa said cases have been registered with the CBCID who were currently investigating the matter.
The girl, a class eight student of a private school in Melaputhur in Tiruchirapalli, did not return home on August 13 after attending school, she said.
A missing case has been registered by her relative Jamaludeen on August 14 at Palakarai Police station.
The girl`s body was found near Rettaimadai Railway tracks and was sent to Government Hospital for an autopsy, she said.
Observing that witnesses had stated that the girl was seen walking near railway tracks, on that fateful day, she said, the post mortem report had said that there were injuries caused by a train-hit.
"Whether there was a rail accident or whether it is a suicide or a death due to violence are being probed", she said.
