Vishakapatnam: The death of a twelve-year-old boy, whose body was found near a cinema in Paderu in the ASR district, has sparked protests from family, relatives, friends and student groups back on Friday.

The deceased was identified as P Naveen, a class-VII student of the Government Tribal Welfare Ashram School for Boys in Lochaliputtu locality of Paderu mandal. The family believes that someone killed him and dumped the body in the forest.

Naveen is a resident of Surlapalem village in G Madugula mandal. A body with injuries was found near the boundary wall of the residential school on Wednesday evening. Local police have shifted the body for post-mortem.

The boy’s father Mahendra said Naveen returned to Surlapalem a few days ago and returned to school on Tuesday. “When I went to the school on Wednesday to meet my son, the school authorities did not allow me,” Mahendra told the media. He sought a detailed investigation into the death.

Leaders and workers of student organizations (SFI and ABVP) staged protests in Paderu and called for the arrest of the culprits. Police said an investigation is underway to ascertain the facts.

Meanwhile, in another development, the Bheemili police are investigating a case of assault and abduction of a person that took place at Erramatti Dibbalu tourist center near Bhimili. A woman reported to the police on Wednesday that her husband went missing from Erramatti Dibbalu. Later, the victim, Killi Surendra, returned home and lodged a complaint with the police that he had been attacked and robbed.

Police said there was no evidence of an assault or robbery and the man’s identity was unknown. The police found Surendra, an artist, and his uncle Appala Raju, attacked a family of women and children while they were out on a picnic. There is only one male member of the group. The attackers were drunk. When the man protested, they ran away from the scene.

Fearing that the family would accuse him, they disappeared and one of them staged a kidnapping drama. “We are investigating both the complaints and taking action accordingly,” said CI Sudhakar who is investigating the case.
