Balangir: A 12-year-old girl of Salebaratra village under Sindhekela police limits in Odisha’s Balangir district went missing while it is being suspected that she was sacrificed by her brother.
After family members of the minor girl lodged a complaint with police on Friday night, several villagers yesterday gheraoed the police station demanding immediate arrest of the accused. Police have detained the brother of the girl, identified as Sobhaban Rana, for questioning.
