Detectives from area one headquarters and Hanover police are working together to apprehend the responsible person or persons behind the killing of 9-year-old Nikita Noel. On Thursday, it was reported that a 42-year-old man was arrested for the incident and since then, three more people have been arrested in connection with the heinous murder.
The Esher Primary School student was discovered dead on Wednesday of this week, and it was later discovered that she had been raped.
It was reported that the youngster was taken to her usual drop-off point by her appointed driver, but because of the deplorable road conditions, cars are unable to take the children to their houses, so instead, they are left at designated points and have to walk the rest of their journey. Also revealed in the report, relevant personnel went to the institution on Thursday to offer grief counselling to the students who knew the slain child.
The principal of the institution Nikita attended reassured the news team that the child was picked up and left at her designated drop-off point.
Officers were seen at Nikita’s home, offering comforting words to the grieving family.
Available footage was also seen of the child’s dog, who was said to routinely meet her to walk home together when she was dropped off from school. It is said that residents of the community found the animal with his legs tied.
Nikita’s mother expressed that her child was extremely disciplined in coming straight home when she left school, so when she saw that the child had not gotten home by a certain time, she knew that something was wrong.
Nikita’s lifeless body was discovered just a few minutes away from her home at approximately 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
