Shimla: The The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) team and a team of AIIMS doctor on Tuesday reached Shimla for the probe of a gangrape-and-murder of a 16-year-old girl.

The teams will also re-examine the body of the Nepalese national, one of the six accused in the case who died in police custody five days ago, preserved at a hospital.

The minor girl had gone to school on July 5 and was allegedly raped and murdered. Her dead body was reportedly found a day after she went missing from nearby forest area.

Six accused were arrested, after the father of the girl lodged a complaint with the Kotkhai Police Station in Shimla.

The CBI had constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by Superintendent of Police and an Additional Superintendent and a Deputy Superintendent and taken over the investigation of both the cases.

The CBI has announced two helpline numbers for the public for more details. The numbers are: 8219885920 and 8219893590.
