Jayapriya was playing around her home situated in Anbal Village until she suddenly disappeared on the first of July. However, her parents did not make the effort to search for her since they thought she would have gone to her relativeโ€™s house right around the corner. When the 7-year-old didnโ€™t return, a police complaint was made and search parties were formed. She was later found in a shrub with multiple industries.

The Pudukottai Medical College conducted a postmortem on the body when they found outย that she was raped and murdered.

The police suspected it to be a murder involving more than one person and search was on to nab the culprits.
