Patna, Jan 16 (IANS) The CID will now probe the case of a 13-year-old girl in Bihar missing since Sep 18 after police failed to make any breakthrough, police said Wednesday.
The Class 7 student of a public school was abducted from her house in Muzaffarpur district.
"The government has handed over the investigation to CID (crime investigation department)," Senior Superintendent of Police Rajesh Kumar in Muzaffarpur told IANS.
The parents of the girl want a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The anguished father, Atulya Chakravorty, said his daughter was abducted by property dealers as he refused to give up a piece of prime land in Muzaffarpur.
A skeleton was found from a drain near Chakravorty's house. But despite a court order, Chakravorty and his wife refused to give their blood samples for a DNA test saying the skeleton was not their daughter's.
