Christian school teacher criminally assaulted, murdered

A teacher in a school run by a Christian missionary was raped and murdered in Balrampur district of Chhattisgarh, police said in Raipur on Saturday.

Twenty-two-year-old Sorita Toppo, a Christian, had gone to the forest to collect wood on November 28 when she was criminally assaulted and murdered, Balrampur Superintendent of Police B S Thakur told PTI.

Toppo's body, recovered from the forest, bore multiple wounds, he said, adding one person had been detained for questioning.

The SP said Toppo was employed in a school run by Father James Minz in a village, some 500 kms from the state capital Raipur.
