HYDERABAD: An unidentified boy aged about 12 years was found dead inside a pit dug for the P.V. Narasimha Rao Express Highway under construction at Laxminagar crossroads in Langer Houz late on Friday night. The HUDA officials grew suspicious on seeing an unclaimed pair of slippers and a shirt lying along the pit dug for erecting the concrete pillar.

The body of the boy was found when water was pumped out from the 10-feet-deep ditch using machines. Moles were found on the right side of the nose and right shoulder of the victim. A locket was also found around his neck. Langer Houz police station Sub-Inspector Shankaraiah said the boy could have slipped into the pit accidentally.
