The victim of the alleged murder is misidentified as the 'cycle girl' Jyoti Paswan from Bihar because she had a similar name.
A 14-year-old girl was raped and murdered in Bihar, at the same village of Darbhanga, where Jyoti Paswan resided. Jyoti Kumari, the victim, had been found dead in an orchard near an ex-army man's house. He has been accused of alleged crime against the teenage girl.
SSP Babu Ram said that the post mortem report stated that the cause of death is suffocation after being electrocuted. The cycle girl spoke to the National Crime Investigation Bureau team and said that she was fine and that she was preparing for a cycle trail.
