A six-year-old girl was raped, murdered and mutilated after being lured away from a family wedding with the promise of ice cream
Haunting CCTV shows the small child, in a floor-length white dress, following a man into the street in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, in India, on Wednesday evening.
She was last seen holding the man's hand disappearing into darkness at around 11.30pm. The man is later seen returning alone three hours later at around 2.30am.
Police began a desperate hunt for the little girl after her parents realised she was missing and her body was found on a hillock 500 metre from the venue in the early hours of Thursday morning.
