The body of an 11-year-old boy, who was kidnapped last week, was found in Bhim Nagar here triggering protests by the family members.

The body of Aman, who was reported missing since last Wednesday, was found by some women in the adjoining fields on Sunday evening, the police said.

The police, who conducted post mortem on the body, said preliminary investigations revealed Aman was sodomised before he was killed and his body thrown in the fields.

Aman’s body was handed over to his father Shiv Lal, a resident of Bihar, who along with his family and villagers, staged a brief dharna at Phagwara Chowk demanding immediate arrest of the accused, Monu, a youth who lived in the neighbourhood.
