**Bhubaneswar/Surat: ** Even though Gujarat Home Minister had earlier sought the help of Odisha police to identify the Surat minor rape victim suspected to be from Odisha, the girl has eventually been discovered to be from Andhra Pradesh.
According to Surat Police Commissioner Satish Sharma, the parents of the minor girl on Tuesday claimed that she was their daughter and had been missing since October last year.
The Commissioner also informed media that the body will be handed over to the couple only after a DNA confirmation test.
Notably, on April 6 an unidentified the body of an 11-yr-old girl with about 86 injury marks, including around her vagina was found dumped in Surat’s Bhestan area.
She was allegedly held captive for days together, physically tortured and raped repeatedly before being strangulated to death and dumped in the city.
