The body of a two-year-old girl who went missing from her Pune home on Saturday was found on Sunday, according to several media reports.

Her parents, who are daily wage labourers, approached the police. Her body was found around 500 metres from her home early Sunday morning, reported News18. Police said the girl was kidnapped and allegedly sexually assaulted, according to the report.

One suspect has been detained, as per the report. A case has also been registered under Section 376 (rape) and 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

"In the early hours of Sunday, the body of a girl was found in a residential society. It turned out to be the missing girl. An offence of kidnapping and murder has been registered," a senior police official told The Indian Express.

"Prima facie, it seems that the girl was strangulated as there are marks on her neck. Some residents living nearby spotted the body Sunday morning," a police official told The New Indian Express.
