When the girl resisted rape and started shouting, Dastageer strangulated her with the scarf and later threw her in the sump. Police recovered the mutilated body after two days.
Police traced the murderer with the help of CCTV footage and other technical evidences. Mahender Reddy informed that Dastageer attended funeral rites of the girl to evade suspicion and later went absconding.
