In the brutal rape and murder of an unidentified minor girl, the Surat police station has transferred the case to CBI.

Days earlier, a 19-year-old Jamshedpur boy was arrested for slashing his five-year-old cousin's throat for resisting his rape attempts.

The girl has not been identified and nobody has come forward to claim the body. According to doctors, there were at least 86 injury marks on her body and according to autopsy reports, there were severe injuries to the girl's private parts caused by a blunt object.

The Gujarat Police had announced an award of Rs 20,000 for providing any information about the girl.

In Kathua, an eight-year-old girl from the nomadic Bakerwal community had gone missing from near her house on January 10 and a week later, her body was found in the same area. "We are trying to establish the identity of the girl", NDTV quoted police officer BK Jhala as saying.
