An eight-year-old boy, who was missing from east Delhi’s Mustafabad area, was found dead in a drain near his house on Tuesday night. Police said the boy’s parents had filed a missing complaint a few days ago.
“A passerby informed us about the presence of a body of a child in the drain. The body was taken out on Tuesday night,” a senior police officer said. The body has been sent for post-mortem examination to ascertain the cause of death.
“The boy was a student of Class II. He might have fallen into the drain or maybe someone dumped the body after killing him. Investigation is on,” the officer added.
