    Teenage girl is rescued after being buried alive following property dispute

    These are the distressing images of a young girl being pulled out alive from rubble after two hours following a property dispute.
    Khushboo Khatun, 19, was on her way home from a market in India when three men pounced on her and threw her into a 3ft deep pit before they filled it with earth and left her to die.
    Video footage shows the frantic rescue of Khushboo after she was buried under debris in Govindpur village, in Bihar, eastern India on Sunday. When Kushboo didn't make it home, her father Muhammad Azim Ansari, 43 and mother Sanjana Khatun, 40, began to worry and started looking for her.
    Eventually, Ansari noticed the nearby pit was randomly filled with earth and suspected foul play.He quickly started digging, and called on other villagers to help, before they came across Khushboo in a semi-conscious state.
    She had been buried for two full hours and was almost suffocating.
    Video footage shows villagers ferociously digging as the bottom half of Kushboo's body is still buried deep in the soil.
    They threw water on her in a bid to clean off the soil but Kushboo could barely hold herself upright, as men continue to dig in an attempt to get her free.
    One rescuer can be seen pulling debris from inside her mouth.The teenager was eventually dragged from the rubble and taken to a nearby local government hospital suffering with shock.
    'They threw me in the pit, tried to bury me alive, so that they could kill me,' Kushboo said of the ordeal.

    The police are searching for suspects, Amit Shah, who is a local businessman, and two accomplices.
    Superintendent Nawal Kishore Singh, from Samastipur police station, said Amit Shah had wanted to use land owned by Ansari for construction.
    As Ansari was not willing to co-operate, Amit used his daughter as a threat.
    Superintendent Nawal Kishore Singh added: 'It is a property dispute.
    'It's been going on for several years. 
    'Amit has threatened Ansari many times in the past.
    'Amit, along with two others, attacked a member of Ansari's family as a warning. 
    'They threw the girl into a pit and filled it with the soil. 
    'We are now searching for all three suspects.'
    Kushboo was discharged from hospital the following day and is now recovering at home.
