4-year-old on Goa holiday murdered
MUMBAI: A four-year-old girl from Kurla, who went missing last week during a trip to Goa with her mother, was found murdered on Tuesday morning. The body was decomposed and the head severed.
A labourer had called up the police in Goa and informed them that a kid’s body was found behind an abandoned under-construction building in Madgaon. Cops said they had received a missing complaint about the kid and identified the body from her clothes.
The police registered a murder case and sent the body for post-mortem. Sources close to the family said the girl, Seema Muzeeb Ur Rahman, and her mother, Momina Khatoon, had gone to her grandmother’s house on a holiday. The family stays at Kajupada in Kurla.
“Four days ago, Seema, who was playing outside the house, went missing. The family looked for her for hours before lodging a missing person complaint,” said Mohammed Jameel, Seema’s uncle.
Jameel said they will leave for Goa soon. Seema’s father, Rahman, a scrap dealer, told cops that he does not have enmity with anybody nor rivalry with any businessman. The police said it was unclear how the child reached the abandoned building, which was quite far from her granny’s house.
