HYDERABAD: In a new twist to Tuesday’s incident of a girl set ablaze by a person in Jeedimetla, police came to know that girl was abducted by accused two days back and victim’s identity has been established as Niharika and not Bhavani as announced by police. The girl was wrapped in a mattress and was set on fire by accused, N Vijay, near Mahadevpur under the Jeedimetla police limits on Tuesday morning. Locals caught Vijay, who was in an inebriated condition and handed him over to the police. Speaking on Tuesday evening, Cyberabad police commissioner, Dwaraka Tirumala Rao had said that victim Bhavani was taken away by her mother’s paramour and killed. The accused was incoherent in speech during the interrogation, he said. Late on Tuesday night, the accused reportedly told police that he had abducted the girl two days before the killing.

Vijay was in no way related to the girl or her mother.

Vijay told police that he had abducted the four-year-old girl, Niharika, from near her house at Borabanda. A missing case was registered on February 26. She was the daughter of Nagarjuna, a car driver and Padma. The girl was suffering from polio.

“During investigation, Vijay told us that he took her to a movie and slept in a temple,” police said. Police are also investigating whether the accused had sexually assaulted the girl.
