A senior police officer said one Sahadeb Mudi, stated to be the friend of the girl's father, was arrested in connection with the brutalisation of the girl child near her home.

Mudi, along with another unnamed friend, had been asked to spend the night at his residence by the girl's father after taking part in a religious festival in the area which lasted till midnight.

The girl, a student of nursery in local school, was found missing by her grandmother when she woke up during midnight and she raised an alarm. The girl was sleeping with her grandfather while the two friends were lodged in a nearby room in the same building.

Upon continued search in the neighbourhood, the child's body was recovered by villagers and the family from the sand of nearby Damodar riverbank and her blood-stained garments from a bush nearby, the officer said.

Based on the family's complaint the two friends of her father were then detained, and one of them Sahadeb Mudi put under arrest later on after he allegedly confessed about involvement in the crime.

The other detained person was still being interrogated.

Additional SP and other top police officers were camping at the village.
