The horrific gangrape and murder of an 8-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua shocked the nation, and even as the conviction and sentencing process is yet to take place, a similar incident reportedly took place in Gujarat's Surat.

An unidentified 11-year-old girl's body was found with 86 external injuries, including some on her private parts media reported on Sunday. A 5-hour long postmortem of the girl revealed that she had been raped and tortured for a period of at least 8 days and was later strangled to death.

"On conducting a post-mortem, we found wounds on her body which were between one to seven days old. She had 86 external injuries on her body," Civil Hospital forensics head Ganesh Govekar said, adding that a wooden weapon was used to cause most of the injuries.

The body of the 11-year-old was on April 6 by the police at a ground in Surat's Bhestan area but she has not yet been identified.

"The body of the 11-year-old girl was found around 6 am near a road next to a cricket ground by people on their morning walk... We are trying to establish the identity of the girl," police officer KB Jhala said.

The Kathua rape case, where an 8-year-old girl was kidnapped and gangraped over a period of 5 days while she was force-fed sedatives before she was finally killed, resulted in protests over the brutal treatment meted out to the young girl. The protests gained a communal tint when it was revealed that the girl was a Muslim and the 8 accused were Hindus. Moreover, she had been kept in a temple in Kathua while she was gangraped.

What is make as comments as there is suitable words to express such crimes , Why parliament is not bringing in Acts to give "death penalty" for such crimes. why local administrations fail to check such cases, I know police is to protect each & every citizen but if the administration is very strict ( as is supposed to be) no such incidents would occur . This is difference in Indian police & UK police or US police, Administration is sold out to the political leaders or political party in power The morals & ethics of indian policeman is going down everyday, Political leaders are talking about Dr. Ambedkar, who is worshipper of "Humanity" based on morals, ethics & values. Lectures do not serve but action speaks the reality.
