The case of a 13-year-old girl who went missing on August 13 and found in a fragmented condition the next day on a railway track on the city’s outskirts was on Friday transferred to the CB-CID.

The case was earlier transferred from the railway police to the City Police. Since the city police found no fruitful lead into the probe, the girls’ relatives and a few Muslim organisations insisted on transfer of the case to the CB-CID.

A Thoufik Sulthana (13), daughter of Akbar Basha of Kajamalai, was studying Class-VIII in a private school. She went missing on August 13, and her body was found on the railway track at Rettamalai area. The body was brought to the GH for post mortem and the girl’s mother Mehabunnisha refused to accept the body, and the girl’s relatives staged a road blockade on Aug 16. The victim’s mother met Collector Jayashree Muralidharan and told her that they suspected Thoufik Sulathana was sexually assaulted by miscreants, and subsequently murdered. They demanded arrest of the culprits.  As there was no improvement in the case, Muslim organisations demanded shifting of the case to the CB-CID.
