Later that day, she was admitted to Thanjavur Medical College Hospital but could not respond to treatment and passed away on may 19. 

As per The News Minute report, when the 13-year-old girl of Nodiyur village did not return home after an hour, her parents got worried and started searching for her. They went to the water source, where she last visited and also searched her inside a nearby forest. To their shock, the girl was found in an unconscious state.  

“The parents found the girl inside the forest in an unconscious state with strangulation marks on her neck. The parents tried to revive her but their efforts failed,” said a police official. The girl was then rushed to Thanjavur Medical College Hospital by the police, while investigation and search in the matter was on. 

"When the complainant came to us, they wrote that the girl had been strangled and her clothes disarranged. When we found the body, her chudidhar bottom was missing. At this point of the investigation, we cannot confirm if there was any sexual intent, but we have included section 12 of the POCSO act. It is necessary for us to do so when private parts are exposed. We have four suspects as of now and once we get a clearer picture of what happened we can alter the sections. Since there were ligature marks around the neck, we have registered a case under attempt to murder. We will trace the culprit by Tuesday evening or by Wednesday,” said a police officer, who is handling the case.

The police have currently registered a under Section 12 (sexual harassment) of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and Section 307 (attempt to murder) of Indian Penal Code.

The autopsy report of the girl is yet to come while the police have collected few finger prints from the crime scene.
