The Surat gang rape, though no less horrific than the Kathua one, the police may have finally cracked the case.
This is because the Ahmedabad Crime Branch claims to have arrested three persons on Friday in connection with the rape and murder of 11-yr-old in Surat.
Police thus also claims to have seized a vehicle that might have been used to dump the victim’s body.
Police have identified the prime accused as one Amar Singh, a construction labourer in Surat.
He was arrested from Gangapur in Rajasthan while it is said that he had two associates, both of them arrested from Surat itself.
The girl child’s mutilated body had been recovered from beside the Hazira-Mumbai highway a few days ago.
It was later that the autopsy reports had suggested that the victim was confined for several days and tortured before being brutally raped and killed.
