Tezpur: A young girl who was presumed to have died with the body cremated two days ago turned up on Friday at the Tezpur police station in Assam’s Sonitpur district.
Nineteen-year-old Indrani Bora of neighbouring Nagaon district fled with her friend Mukut Ali from Guwahati to Dhubri district on October 17, police sources said.
The girl’s family alleged that she was kidnapped.
On October 26 a female body with marks of injury was found at Bilasipara in Sonitpur district which was identified by the girl’s family as that of Indrani, the sources said.
The body was cremated at Kathaldoi village in Nagaon the same day, they said.
Indrani appeared at the Tezpur police station this morning claiming that she had stayed at Ali’s residence at Trivenee Point here, the sources said.
Ali, who has a criminal record, accompanied Indrani to the police station.
Indrani and Ali, who was arrested two months ago in a fake currency and stamp paper case and later released on bail were being questioned by the police.
The Bilasipara police subsequently registered a case to ascertain the identity of the body cremated at Nagaon, the sources added.
