Two-year-old girl’s body found in Gorakhpur Express

The body of a two-year-old girl was found wrapped in a cloth in coach S-6 of Gorakhpur Express late on Friday at Lokmanya Tilak terminus.

Kurla Railway Police has registered a case of accidental death and are investigating further to ascertain if the child was murdered. Senior inspector, Shivaji Dhumal, said when the train went to yard for washing, the workers saw the body.

Dhumal said there was no strangulation marks on the body. "We are awaiting post mortem report and are also yet to trace the identity of the girl. We suspect that the girl might have some internal injuries," he said, adding the appearance of the girl suggests she was from a poor family.
