The nine year old girl's death is the latest rape scandal to hit India

Officials said the girl's body was burned with acid and she may have been tortured. She was reported missing two days later, 24 August, by her father, who feared she had been abducted.

Police have arrested six people in connection with the gang rape and murder of a nine-year-old girl in Indian-administered Kashmir.

Examination of the crime scene led to suspicions of murder and an investigation was launched, the police said.

"During sustained questioning of the step-mother of the deceased and other suspects, a bone-chilling and disgusting account of the rape and murder of the nine-year-old child came to be known", Hussain said.

Indian police have arrested a woman and four others after her nine-year-old stepdaughter was allegedly gang-raped, murdered and mutilated, in the latest horrific crime to shock the country.

The 9-years-old girl's body was found decomposed in a nearby forest area on Sunday near her home in Uri.

Investigation has revealed that the stepmother had a long-standing grudge against her husband's second wife and her children. "During questioning, A revealed that her husband would mostly spend time with B and that his daughter (now deceased) was his dearest", police claimed, adding that the acrimonious atmosphere, primarily caused by X taking a second wife, had been worsening.

"While she was on way to forests with her step-daughter, she signalled her son, aged 14, to be ready". The other accused - 19-year-old Kaiser Ahmad, another teenager, and 28-year-old Naseer Ahmad - then joined them. "They all took turns to rape her and thereafter her stepmother strangulated her", Mir told Deccan Chronicle.

"Then she strangulated the girl and her son hit her on the head with an axe, killing her on the spot", police added.

Reports said that the decomposed body was dumped in a forest near family's home in Uri. "Another accused gouged out her eyes with a sharp knife, and then sprinkled acid on her body parts", the SSP said. All the material and weapons of offence, including the axe and the knife, have been recovered at the instance of the accused.
