"He slit her throat in the early hours of Saturday. We have registered a case of murder and further probe is on," the official said.

The girl had gone to her aunt's house, which was across the road from her place, where her uncle, 32, allegedly raped her, the police said. She told her parents about the incident, following which the police were informed about the same, police said.

A case was registered against the girl's uncle and the girl was sent for a medical examination, they said, adding that the man is absconding.
