Ali strangled the girl to death and later he chopped her into six pieces after taking to a residence on Akmal Ali Road in the city. He later dumped the body wrapped with two bags at a beach in the city’s Kattali area, the PBI officer said.

“We are trying to recover the body from the beach and seize the sharp weapons used in the killing,” he said.

The victim’s father, Sohel Rana, lodged a general diary at the local police station after she went missing, police said.
