BENGALURU: A six-year-old boy who had gone missing was found dead in a well on Modi Road in Devarajeevanahalli on Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as Sufiyan, who was living on Modi Road with his father Imran and mother Mohseen Taj. Both the parents were working as labourers. On Monday evening, Sufiyan went out to play but did not return. After an hour, his parents went searching for him and later, filed a missing person’s complaint with D J Halli police.

On Wednesday morning, the child’s body was found in a well. After autopsy, doctors declared there were no external injuries on the body, and put it down as a case of drowning.  The well is around 25 feet deep and has a two-feet retention wall around it. Police suspect that Sufiyan might have tried to peep into the well and fallen down.

Attempt to Set SUV Afire

Miscreants allegedly attempted to set an SUV on fire at Chamrajpet in the wee hours of Wednesday. Police rounded up a few suspects as the act was caught on CCTV cameras installed at a house and a commercial complex.

The incident occurred at the 1st Cross of Valmiki Nagar around 2.30 am when a few men came to the area and started pouring petrol on a car belonging to Syed Zaheer, a businessman.

As the neighbours were alerted and they immediately doused the fire, the car was only partially damaged from the front. The residents alerted the police.
