Bokaro boy body in ditch

Bokaro/Hazaribagh, Dec. 7: The decomposed body of Sudhanshu Kumar Singh (11) was found from a ditch hardly 20m from GT Road in Hazaribagh this afternoon, 11 days after the St Xavier’s School student was kidnapped by four youths from Bokaro’s Sector IV.

A joint team of Bokaro and Hazaribagh police launched the search in Barkatha, after the arrested abductors, three of them college students, revealed that they had killed the student and dumped his body along GT Road between Giridih and Hazaribagh.

The team got alerted when they saw a stray dog coming out from a ditch at Kasidih Chowk, 67km from Hazaribagh district headquarters and 120km from Bokaro steel city. They went down into the ditch, covered in bushes, and spotted a pair of slippers and clothes. A little further down lay the body.

Sudhanshu’s uncle with whom he used to stay in Bokaro identified the body from the clothes and slippers.
