“The infant had an injury on her head. The accused probably threw her to the ground. However, only the post-mortem report will verify if she died due to this or whether she was smothered,” Mishra stated. He further added that Bheel would be arrested soon.

Meanwhile, Condemning the incident, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, “The rape incident in Indore has shook my soul, such a heinous act with a small child!
