Boy goes missing: He may have drowned in river, claim friends
Ghaziabad: A young boy who had gone to take dip at gang river canal in Niwadi area of Ghaziabad, along with two of his other friends, has went missing while his friends have claimed that he has drowned on Thursday.
Victim's family members have alleged his friends to have killed him and dumped the body in the river. However, Police are unable to trace the boy even 24 hours after the incident.
Rahul Kumar (19), a resident of Sihani gate Village of Ghaziabad had gone to gang river canal along with two friends of vicinity- Sonu and Saurabh.
Rahul's father TunaRam said that Rahul had gone to gang river on Thursday afternoon and didn't return home till evening.
"When he didn't return home, we went to his friend Saurabh's home to look for him. Saurabh handed over Rahul's mobile phone and shirt to us saying that he has drowned and they tried to save him but could not. He shut back the door of his house and went inside," said TunaRam, who is a rickshaw puller.
"Following the information, we reached the spot and called police but no one came. Police officials of Masuri and Niwadi police station also refused to lodge out complaint claiming that the area is not under their jurisdiction. We suspect that Rahul's friends have killed him and dumped the body in river as a fight had broke out between them around two weeks ago but got settled," added TunaRam.
Meanwhile Dharmendra Kumar, SHO Niwadi police station said that police have received the complaint from the family and an FIR will be lodged into the matter.
