Talking to Millennium Post, a cousin of the boy shared: “Although Saransh (name changed) was discharged from the Lal Bahadur Shastri hospital on Monday night, he is still under a lot of pain. A slow learner, he usually speaks less. After this incident, he has completely stopped talking.”

Family members further alleged that the accused had held Saransh hostage in their room for four hours. Late at night, the accused dropped the minor boy at doorstep of his house, threatening his mother to remain quiet or face dire consequences.
