A day after a 10-year-old girl was found murdered in the forest area of Sector 52 late Sunday evening, the post-mortem of the deceased was conducted at GMSH-16 on Monday. The post-mortem report suggests that the girl was not sexually assaulted before she was murdered, according to sources.

"After conducting the post-mortem, we did not find any evidence of a sexual assault," said one of the doctors.

The victim, identified as Pinki, was reported to have been missing since November 27.

A "police informant" called Gurmeet Kaur claimed to have received information about the whereabouts of Pinki from some unidentified women before Pinki was found murdered. The unidentified women had allegedly asked for Rs 1 lakh to provide the information, Kaur said.

The victim's family accused the Chandigarh Police of inaction as it failed to identify the accused even after the family told the police about the claims made by Kaur.

Talking to Newsline, Gudda Devi, mother of the deceased, said, "Yesterday, a woman called Gurmeet Kaur visited my house. She told me that a few unidentified women claimed to have information about the whereabouts of my daughter. However, they were asking for Rs 1 lakh to provide the information."

Kaur, who claimed to have provided information to the Chandigarh Police on several occasions, said, "I overheard a few unidentified women talking among themselves, claiming to have information about Pinki. When I asked, they demanded Rs 1 lakh to provide the information. I told the mother of the deceased about the claims made by the unidentified women."

Devi said that she gave a written complaint to the Chandigarh Police about the matter, but they failed to take action. A few hours later, Pinki was found dead.

DSP (South) Surjit Singh Malik said, "We received a complaint by the family. We are looking into this angle too."
