HARIPUR: The body of a minor boy, who had gone missing three days ago, was found near Sera-e-Saleh village, police and family said here on Saturday.

Family sources said that Haseeb, 6, a resident of Mohallah Jandran Sera-e-Saleh, went missing in the afternoon on May 23 and the report was lodged with Sera-e-Saleh police.

On Saturday afternoon, some local people found his body near River Daur bridge in Sera-e-Saleh.

According to witnesses who informed the police, the body was clearly carrying torture marks on face and head, indicating that the boy’s head and face was hit with either a stone or some weapon.

The naked body also indicated the possibility of sexual assault.
