The children who had last seen Joginder Mali, 10, before he was killed could not recollect the accused’s face.
“We were planning to make sketches of the man that Joginder left with. However, the children can’t remember his features,” said inspector Prasad Dharia of the RCF police station said.
Joginder’s body was found on a hillock in Chembur on Sunday.
However, a man had seen Joginder with the accused. “We will prepare the sketch with his help and show it to the children,” said an officer.
J Khandagle, assistant commissioner of police, (Trombay division), said: “It doesn’t seem to be a case of child sacrifice.”
“It is not a case of extortion as the family is poor. Joginder’s father said he does not have enmity with anyone. The medical report state that he was not sexually molested,” said Dharia.
