Ankita Singh, the 15-year-old Class 12 student, suffered burns from a highly inflammable substance that caused her painful death in Dumka district of Jharkhand, reveals the autopsy report.

The severe burns lead to the formation of pus in her body’s skin, states the post-mortem report prepared by the Forensic Medicine and Toxicology department of Ranchi’s Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS).

Due to the formation of pus, the body parts of Ankita gradually stopped functioning properly, leading to her slow and painful death, as per the examination report which has been sent to the Dumka Police. Viscera of Ankita’s body will be sent for a forensic examination, the police said.

Meanwhile, the police have added provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act to the FIR registered in the case. In a statement, the police said that it added relevant sections after correcting her age from 19 to 15 years.

The main accused Shahrukh, her spurned lover, along with co-accused Naeem alias Chhotu, has been sent to 72 hours of police custody by a local court.

The incident happened at night when the girl was fast asleep. The culprit, who has been arrested, poured petrol on Ankita from outside the window of her room and set her ablaze on August 23. She succumbed to her 90 per cent burns in Phulo Jhano Medical College and Hospital in Dumka on August 28.
