According to one report, the girl went out of her house for playing, but did not return. Upon the request of her family, announcements were made in the nearby mosques. People of the village started searching for the missing child and found a sack in a field, and immediately informed the police.

When cops arrived at the scene and opened the sack, they found the bloodied body of the girl stuffed in the sack.

The body was immediately shifted to Qazi Hussain Ahmed Medical Complex Nowshera from where it was referred to Khyber Teaching Hospital Peshawar.

According to the report, doctors who examined her body, upon being taken to a nearby hospital, confirmed that her body bore torture marks. Police said the girl was hit on her head, and other parts of the body with a heavy stone multiple times.

Twitter user @pasrija_arun commented: "People with such devilish traits are all over the globe, call them uneducated, satanic or whatever. No religion preaches for such heinous crimes. Religion is to make people compatible with everything made available for everyone. Such dirty minds will meet their deeds for sure."

A human rights activist Surajraut @surajra70594349 commented: "When you will wake up? Or you dont want to!," tagging United Nations @UN_Women.

This is not the first such incident in Nowshera. In January 2020, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped and murdered in the district. The minor girl had left her house in at around 3pm for classes at the local madrassa (an educational institution), and she did not return home by evening.
