Three men have been arrested for allegedly killing a 10-year-old girl in Gugulethu, Cape Town.

The men, aged between 24 and 38, were arrested yesterday night, Western Cape police captain Frederick van Wyk said today.

The girl’s body was found under a bed in a room in a house in Gugulethu yesterday.

“The victim still had her school tracksuit top on,” said Van Wyk.

Police could not confirm whose room it was.

The girl’s family reported her missing on Monday.

“A postmortem will be conducted to determine the cause of death and also to see if she was sexually assaulted,” he said.

The men would appear in the Athlone Magistrates’ Court soon.
