Rewa: A 16-year-old boy allegedly raped a 58-year-old woman and murdered her by gagging and hitting her brutally in Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa district, a crime suspected to the fallout of a mobile phone theft two years ago, police said on Sunday.
The incident took place on the night of January 30 in Kailashpuri village under Hanumana police station limits.
The boy allegedly stuffed a plastic bag and a cloth into her mouth, dragged her to an under-construction part of the building where she resided, hit on her head and other body parts with a sickle and also caused injuries to her private parts with a stick, an official said.
The woman’s family had accused the boy of stealing a mobile phone two years ago and the boy wanted to take revenge for it, he said.
Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Vivek Lal said an information was received on February 1 that the body of a 58-year-old woman was lying at an under-construction building.
The police and forensic team reached the spot and it was found the woman was brutally murdered by an unidentified person, he said.
