The blood-soaked body of a school girl was recovered by police at Debhata upazila in Satkhira district.
The body of Purnima Rani Das, 15, daughter of Shanti Ranjan Das of village Tiket and a Class X student of Ashashuni Gava AKM Ideal High School was recovered by police.
Purnima went missing after she left her house for her private teacher's house on Thursday evening, said his father, adding that they failed to trace her after a frantic search at night.
Later, the body was found in Tarek Mondol's vegetables garden in the village early Friday morning.
On information, police recovered the body around 9:30am, said Debhata Police Inspector (Investigation) Farid Ahmed.
"Partha Mondal, son of the neighbouring Shibu Mondal, used to disturb my daughter. He once sent a marriage proposal but we rejected it. He and his accomplices strangled and killed my daughter after raping her," alleged the victim's father.
Partha Mondal has been absconding following the incident.
"The girl may have been strangled to death. It is unknown at the moment whether she was raped or not. The incident is being investigated," said police official Farid Ahmed.
