Boy found dead inside school drain, family sets building on fire

The body of a 3-year-old boy was found inside a drain at a private school in Patna on Friday, after which his family, enraged, set the building on fire. The family also blocked roads, disrupting traffic movement and burnt tyres on the streets.

The boy's family had launched a search after he did not return home from school. They inquired about the child's whereabouts, but the school told them he had returned home.

The family persisted in their search, eventually leading them to the discovery of the boy's body. Deep within the school premises, concealed within a drainage gutter, they found the body of the three-year-old. Before it, two children of the school, during the investigation, admitted that the boy's body was kept in the sewage of the schoolroom.

Superintendent of Police Chandra Prakash said that the investigation is on as the child is seen entering the school, but did not leave. "In the CCTV footage, we saw that the child was entering the school but at no point can he be seen leaving the school premises. We will investigate it as a murder case as they were hiding the body and it shows criminal intent. We have detained three persons, inquiry is on," Chandra Prakash told the media.
