The Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled Uttarakhand was hit by a big political controversy after a teen girl was found dead. The body was found in a canal and the detailed investigation revealed some spine-chilling details of the incident and how the victim was killed and her body was thrown in a canal.
The incident came to light when the family members of victim Ankita Bandari complained to the cops that the teenage girl had been missing for days. The victim works as a receptionist at a resort owned by the family of former Minister Vinod Arya.
The victim reportedly found illegal activities in the resort and asked about the alleged illegal activities in the resort. Ankita started an argument on this with former minister Vinod Aryaâ€™s son Pulkhit Arya, Saurabh Bhaskar, the manager of the resort, and another person Ankit.
The trio did not like Ankita asking questions about this and the argument broke into a fight and the trio reportedly pushed her into the canal. Though the report filed by the doctors says, the victim lost her life due to drowning, the victimâ€™s family has some doubts and they are alleging that Ankita might have been subjected to molestation.
