UP: Class 9 student found dead in Mathura

AGRA: A class 9 student of Kendriya Vidyalaya in Mathura, who had been missing since Wednesday, was found brutally murdered on Thursday morning, about 500 meters away from his house.
The post mortem report revealed the cause of death — ‘asphyxia due to throttling’.
The boy, Harsh Thakur (14), had gone out from his house around 12pm on Wednesday. When he did not return till 7pm, his family members approached the police.
SP (city) MP Singh said that search operations were launched to locate him but they failed to trace him. However, on Thursday morning, his body was found in the jungle.
He added, the boy was last spotted in CCTV footage of the area around 12:41pm with a polythene bag carrying food. When inquired about it, a local shopkeeper confirmed that he took four packs of chowmein and two pastries from his shop.
“The post report reveals that the boy died almost 24 hours earlier which means around 2-2:30pm,” said Singh, adding that antemortem injuries were reported in the autopsy report.
His mobile phone is also missing and police are trying to locate it.
When the body was found, it was noticed that his face and head were crushed with a heavy stone.
Harsh got a mobile phone just a few months back and he had started his Instagram account as a video creator. “He was very active on Instagram and made several videos,” said his elder brother, who is studying in class 9.
He added that his uncle called on his mobile around 7:40pm and someone answered it but immediately disconnected. The victim’s father works in a private firm and his mother is a housewife.
