In a heart-wrenching incident, the lifeless body of an eight-year-old schoolgirl was discovered on Monday in a closed neighborhood room, where she resided. The young girl, identified as Chandni Saha, lived with her parents and siblings in the Vanya Pada area of Vasai East. Her father works as a mechanic, and Chandni was a student in the third grade at a local government school.

The unfortunate incident unfolded on Saturday when Chandni returned home from school on December 1. After changing into new clothes, she headed out to enjoy some ice cream. Tragically, as she played in the courtyard in the evening, she met an untimely end, leaving her family and the community in shock.

The family immediately initiated a search when Chandni did not return home that evening. Concerned, her relatives filed a missing person report with the local police, suspecting foul play. The police responded promptly, launching an investigation and filing a case of kidnapping.

As the search for Chandni continued, a breakthrough occurred on Monday afternoon. In a locked room in a nearby building at around 3 PM, the lifeless body of Chandni was discovered. The body showed signs of injury, prompting the police to broaden their investigation to include a potential homicide.

The discovery of Chandni’s body has left the community in grief, and her family devastated. The local police, who are now treating the case as a possible abduction and murder, have intensified efforts to gather evidence and identify the perpetrators.

Chandni’s tragic fate has raised concerns within the community about the safety of children, especially in residential areas like Bepatta. Parents and residents are urging authorities to take additional measures to ensure the well-being and security of children, both at home and in public spaces.
