Ghaziabad Police has cracked the murder of an 8-yr-old boy who went missing from Shri Ram Enclave in Kavi Nagar on Oct 26 and whose body was found from a jungle of village Girdharpur near Bamheta forest area on Oct 28. This was revealed by SSP Vaibhav Krishna.
The Kavi Nagar police arrested one accused Pappu from near Lalkuan Chowki. Pappu used to do tiling work and had murdered the kid after he had seen him indulging in unnatural sex with another boy. The accused was naked and fearing that the kid would spill the beans—as the accused used to work with his father—lured the boy to the jungle and strangled him. After committing the heinous crime, he disposed of the body in a pit and hid the boy’s trousers and slippers in a nearby bush and even pretended to search for the boy. He has been booked under relevant sections.
