Mumbai: In a shocking incident that came to light from the Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh, two boys aged 13 and 14 were first allegedly tortured by robbers and then stabbed to death.
The deceased have been identified as Mohammad Sadiq (14) and Mohammad Aman (13). On Sunday, their bodies were found lying in the forest of Fatehpur Narayan of Kithor police station area.
The victim has multiple bruises on her body, including bruises on the body. According to a report in the Times of India, when Sadiq was a student of class 9, Aman was studying in class 7. The condition of the bodies shows that the victims were brutally beaten up and stabbed to death.
The deceased boys drove an e-rickshaw in their spare time and carried passengers as their schools were closed due to the COVID pandemic. Sadiq’s phone and e-rickshaw are also missing.
Meanwhile, the Meerut police have rejected the theory of dacoity, saying that the nature of his murder cannot be theft.
Even after two days of the boys’ murder, police have failed to get any leads in the case.
“Though the e-rickshaw and phone are missing, robbery does not seem to be the motive behind the killings. The perpetrators dragged them for over a kilometre from the road deep into the forest. Prima facie, there were no signs of sexual abuse as well. We are probing from all angles including a love affair, but we can not say anything with certainty,” the report quoted Kithore CO Brijesh Singh as saying.
Police have registered an FIR against unknown persons under relevant sections of IPC including murder.
The victims were residents of Shahjahanpur. Their bodies were found a day after their parents filed a missing complaint.
