A minor was strangulated to death with his body dumped metres away from home in West Bengal’s Kashipur district. The incident took place on Monday night, where the six-year-old boy, was killed by a 25-year-old Saiful Mollah. The accused, who later confessed to his crime was apparently in a relationship with the child’s father. He murdered the minor in a fit of rage.

As per reports, Saiful was an employee of the deceased child’s father, who owned a leather bag factory. Saiful was allegedly in a relationship with his boss for several months until the latter’s wife came to know and lambasted him. After this, the child’s father started avoiding Saiful which spurned him to commit the crime.

Additional police superintendent (Baruipur), Indrajit Basu said, “Saiful initially denied any involvement in the crime. However, he broke down and later and confessed his involvement. He then narrated how he strangulated the minor and dumped his body. Saiful then returned to his work in the factory.”

The police got a whiff about Saiful’s involvement after the deceased’s mother raised her suspicion on him. Her husband’s alleged relationship with Saiful prompted her distrust in him.

The body has been sent for autopsy and a case of murder under IPC section 302 has been filed against Saiful. The minor’s father will also be interrogated for his alleged affair with the accused.
