The eight-year-old Kathua rape victim while allegedly held captive in a temple was fed on a strong sedative, Epitril 0.5 pills.

A report published by a leading daily quoted crime branch officer as saying, “Doctors said they have never administered more than 0.5 mg a day of this very strong sedative to their patients.” The child victim was forced to swallow eight pills over a three-day period, the official added.

The officer said that parents of the victim reached the temple one day after her abduction but were not allowed to enter its building and were sent away from the gates itself. Due to the extreme cold, the dead body did not decompose and provided alleged criminals extra time.
