Shantiniketan: Missing boy found in neighbor’s roof shed dead, people set fire to the house

A five-year-old child, who went missing two days ago, was found dead in a shed on the terrace of a neighbor’s house in Bolpur municipality’s Shantiniketan area on Tuesday afternoon, triggering protests and violence, police told.

Angry people ransacked the house and set it on fire. Police said that a female member of the family has been arrested.

Earlier, locals were suspected to have entered the neighbor’s house and found the child’s body hidden under tin and a tarpaulin on the terrace.

The police were informed who took the victim’s body into their possession. It is learned that there was a dispute going on between the two families.

However, the police say that the motive behind the murder is not yet clear. The police brought a sniffer dog for a thorough search of the place.

Shubham, the younger victim of two sons of Shambhu and Mamta Tagore, did not return home on Sunday after going out to buy biscuits from a nearby shop.

By profession, Shambhu is a barber while Mamta is a housewife.

The police were also informed and they also launched a search operation, but to no avail,” said a resident. He could not be found even after a lot of searching.

It is unfortunate that after a thorough search we could not save the child. We cannot compensate for the loss of the family, but we will find out who is involved in the crime and the guilty are punished,” he said.
