A college girl was found lying with severe burns on her body along a national highway in the Shahjahanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, informed the police. The victim is known to be a second-year student, pursuing BA, from a college run by a trust of former union minister Swami Chinmayanand. 

The police said that it was not immediately known how the victim ended up on the roadside, with no clothes on her body.  They added that the victim was not in a condition to record her statements. 

According to Superintendent of Police S Anand, the student suffered 60 per cent burns and has been referred to a hospital in Lucknow for better treatment.

The girl had come to attend her classes accompanied by her father on Monday. As she did not come out after the classes, her father started looking for her.

He was later informed that she has been found lying along the Lucknow-Bareilly National Highway naked and with severe burns and that she was being taken to a hospital by the police.

The girl from a village in the Jalalabad police station area is a student of Swami Shukdevanand Postgraduate College, run by Mumukshu Ashram of Chinmayanand.

The girl's father said that he used to bring his daughter to the college once a week or fortnight and used to wait outside till classes ended.

In a separate incident in the district, the body of a five-year-old girl was recovered while her seven-year-old cousin sister was found injured in the Kanth police station area here.

They had been missing since Monday evening after they had gone to a tubewell outside the village for taking bath, Anand said.

As their family members and other villagers searched for them, the body of one of them was found in an agricultural field outside the village, while the other was found lying injured in neighbouring Fazilpur village, the SP added.
