Burglars raped a 40-year-old woman and her daughter prior torching them to death in Punjab’s Amritsar in the early hours of Tuesday.
Punjab Police have recovered charred bodies of a school clerk and her 20-year-old daughter from their house in Darshan Avenue.
Police said, “The girl body was found tied to a bed and she was in semi-naked condition, while her mother’s body was completely charred.”
Additional deputy commissioner of police (ADCP) Jagjit Singh Walia said, “We are investigating the all case. On seeing the crime scene, it seems the girl was sexually assaulted but things will be clear only after autopsy.”
However, Punjab Police also believes that a person known to the family could also be involved in the crime as the fire department officials had found the main gate of the house open. During initial probe police have also learnt that the dog did not bark when the assailants entered the house.
