Wide spread protests have erupted in Bihar's Gaya district after a headless, mutilated body of a 16 year old girl, who has been missing from her home for over the past week was found; face burned and chest gashed with deep wounds. 


While the family of the girl has alleged that the girl is raped and that they had filed a police complaint the very day she went missing but the police did not bother to take any action; while the police have painted a contrary image. The police have claimed it as a case of honor killing and have said that the missing report was filed only 6 days after the girl went missing.


The girl has been missing from her home since the 28th of December and her body was found on the 6th of January; with her face burned with acid and her breasts cut off along with her head. However; as per police officials the girl did return back home on the 31st night, exactly 3 days after she went missing. 


The police also said that on the very same night; the girl was sent away by her father with some acquaintance and the police reports also suggest that the man who the girl was send with was consistently in touch with some local criminals. 


The man in question has been detained but has denied killing the girl even though his call records show him being constantly in touch with local criminals.


The girl's body will be sent for post-mortem and only then will the claims of rape be either confirmed or ruled out. Thousands of people have taken to the streets in order to protest the horrific incident.
