When Kushboo didn't make it home, her father Muhammad Ansari and mother, Sanjana began to look for her. Eventually Ansari noticed a nearby pit was randomly filled with earth and suspected foul play. He started digging and called on other villagers to help. They noticed part of her body after digging for a while.
The police are now searching for suspects, Amit Shah, who is a local businessman, and two accomplices.
Superintendent Nawal Kishore Singh said Amit Shah had wanted to use land owned by the girl's father, Ansari for construction. The latter however did not co-operate and the property dispute had been going on for years, so Amit used his daughter as a threat.
Kushboo has since been discharged from the hospital and is now recovering at home.
