Police find clue in boy's murder case

HYDERABAD, FEB. 26. The Madhapur police stumbled upon an important clue in the murder of eight-year-old boy, S. Shivanand, whose body was found in a dilapidated building in Siddiquenagar on Wednesday.

Investigations suggested that the murder could be a consequence of an injury reportedly caused by Shivanand to a kid of the same locality.

A few days ago, Shivanand hurled a stone at the kid resulting in bleeding injury to the latter. The investigating authorities suspect that the kid's family members could have kidnapped Shivanand apparently to take revenge and subsequently strangulated him to death.
