A five-year boy was allegedly strangulated by his aunt and two cousins in Bengal on Saturday. Police have arrested a woman and two boys in connection with the crime.
Sahadan Abbasi’s body was found inside a sack dumped in a pond in the Jagatballavpur area of Howrah district, about 39 km from Kolkata.The spot where the body was found is barely 50 metres from his house. The boy’s parents had reported him missing on Friday and told the police that the boy’s aunt may have had a hand in his disappearance. On Saturday morning, a sandal belonging to the victim was found and led to a search of the pond.
“During our preliminary investigation, we came to know that the child was killed over a property dispute between the father and uncle of the victim who quarreled frequently,” Gourav Sharma, superintendent of police of Howrah (Rural) said.
The accused allegedly admitted to the crime, after sustained grilling by the police.
