Police on Thursday arrested a 24-year-old transgender for abducting and murdering his friend’s three-and-a-half-year-old daughter. The murder came to light a week later on Wednesday, when a farmer found the body floating in his well in Melpalnandhal.

Patchaiammal, daughter of Paramasivam and Usha of Melpalnandhal, was a UKG student in Gandhi International Matriculation School at Mangalam. She went missing from the school after lunch break on June 13.  The girl’s cousin Yogesh (7), who studied in the same school told the teachers and the school correspondent that he saw Patchaiammal with Manikandan during the lunch break between 12 noon and 12.30 pm, said inspector R Ramesh.

Meanwhile, they received information from Sundaramurthy that an unidentified body of a girl was found floating in his farm well on Wednesday afternoon. Police recovered the highly-decomposed body of the girl and  Paramasivam confirmed that it was his daughter.

Later, on interrogation, Manikandan confessed to the crime and confessed he had murdered the girl to take revenge on the girl’s father, who had once refused to give money to him for his business.
