3 held for murder of 16-year old girl


Namakkal (TN): A 16-year old girl was strangulated by a jilted lover and two others, including her school mate, at a village in the district, police said today.

In a swift action, police arrested the trio late last night, hours after the murder came to light.

According to police, the girl, a plus one student from Periyanmalai village, was missing after she left for school yesterday morning.

Her body was found by her father in a gunny bag in a ground near the village.

A special police team formed by Namakkal Superintendent of Police S R Senthilkumar investigated and nabbed 20-year old Dilip Kumar and his friends — a 17-year old student and Santosh.

Police said Dilip Kumar was in love with the girl but she had a relationship with another person. Angered over this, he along with the two others waylaid her while she was on way to school and strangulated her. Later, they dumped the body.
