Son killed

Burdwan, April 15: A 12-year-old boy in Burdwan was allegedly beaten to death by his parents after his teacher accused him of stealing his mobile phone and selling it to a classmate.

A police officer said the boy’s father Mukul Sheikh beat him up with a stick and dealt him blows while his mother Ayesha Bibi slapped him repeatedly. When he became unconscious, his father took him to hospital where he died hours later. Ayesha has been arrested while Mukul is absconding.
