Police also found that two of his co-workers were involved in Asif's killing. "The accused are 14 and 16 years old and residents of Edi Bazar.

On Tuesday, the owner left shop around 8.30 p.m while victim was in the shop. The duo strangled the boy with a clutch wire. In the night, they kept the dead body between themselves on a two-wheeler and took it to the graveyard near Dhobighat and dumped it there,'' the DCP said.
