Neighbour main suspect: Police

The minor girl has not yet recorded a detailed statement. Authorities are waiting for her health to improve before pressing her for details.

However police sources confirmed that the suspect is a neighbour to the family, who tried to kill her after the heinous act for fear of being recognized.
