New Delhi, March 10: The body of a five-year-old boy, who was missing for three days, was recovered from a pit here early Sunday, said police.
The body of the boy, identified as Rohan, was recovered from the pit around 3 a.m. from Kushak village in north Delhi’s Swaroop Nagar area.
“One of the villagers informed police after he found the semi-buried body of the victim inside the pit,” said a police officer.
The victim, a lower KG student, was missing since March 7 and a case had already been registered by his family members, said the officer.
“Rohan’s skull was fractured. Prima facie it seemed to be a case of personal enmity as the victim’s family did not get any ransom call. The body has been sent for post-mortem,” he said.
During investigation, the victim’s father, Chandrabhan, who hails from Uttar Pradesh and works as a driver here, told police that he had no personal enmity with anyone.
“A case of murder has been registered and questioning is on with the victim’s relatives and neighbours. No one has been arrested yet,” added the officer.
