Just a day after a minor girl's naked body was located in Hamirpur area in Uttar Pradesh - dumped after being raped and murdered - another minor girl's body was discovered without any clothes on in Jalaun district of the state.

The 7-year-old girl's body was found on Sunday in a field. The minor's 'salwar' was tied around her neck, which led to suspicion that the victim must have been raped.

The superintendent of Police Jalaun, Swami Prasad, stated that a murder case was registered after the father of the deceased filed a complaint. The victim's body was then sent to Orai medical college for post-mortem.
