Police Colonel Napanwut Liemsa-nguan says rescuers found the girl's body on Tuesday near the train tracks in Prachuap Khirikhan province, three days after she went missing.

He said police arrested a railway worker who confessed he assaulted and raped the girl before throwing her out of the moving train.
