More than a month after a four-year-old was found dead, with his throat slit in a watchman’s cabin, the police are yet to arrest the accused.
On September 12, Rohit Singh's body had gone after he went out to play and did not return home.
The next day his body was found in the watchman’s cabin near the Asalpha junction, close to Rohit's residence.
There was outrage in the area after the news spread with around 200 people protesting.
An officer from Unit VII of the crime branch, that is investigating the case, requesting anonymity, said, “Investigations are still on. Initially we suspected local involvement and questioned many people from the area. However, we have not been able to nab the accused.”
The family had registered a missing persons complaint with the Sakinaka police after Rohit did not return home.
The Ghatkopar police had been investigating the case, which was later handed over to Unit VII of the crime branch. Ramesh Singh, Rohit’s father, is a fruit seller in the Kherani Road area of Sakinaka, where the family lives.
