The body of a 3-year-old girl was found from the site of an abandoned college building here today, two days after she went missing, with the police stating that there was a possibility she was raped before being murdered. "The body of the girl was found from an abandoned college building, not far from where she went missing after her uncle dropped her on Friday afternoon at a construction site where her parents work," an official of Thorala police station here said. "Her injuries reveal that her head was smashed on a hard surface.

There is a possibility of her being raped before being murdered, though it will be known only after we receive the post mortem report," the official said. The victim's parents are tribals from Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh and worked in Rajkot as contract labourers, police said.
