A woman in Kollam, Kerala is being questioned after the charred body of her son was found close to their home.

On Wednesday night, the Chathannur Police came upon the partially-charred remains of 14-year-old Jithu Job in an area close to his home. The discovery was made after Jithu's father Job, who runs a medical supplies' store, filed a police complaint on Monday alleging that his son has gone missing. According to the complaint, the boy had gone out to buy a scale for school and never returned home.

When the police, upon a detailed search at the house, discovered the boy's sandals at the back, they inquired about it. When Jithu's mother Jayamol was questioned, her statement to the police was reportedly contradictory from what she told her husband.

We noticed there were abrasions and burn marks on her hand. When we asked her about it, she said it was incurred while she was cooking," said Chathannur sub-inspector Nizar A.

The police later expanded the search with the help of dogs and came upon the charred remains of Jithu in a compound, a bit far from his home. According to the police, the Class 9 student was strangled to death using a shawl and his body later doused in kerosene and set on fire.

In contrast, some weeks back, an engineering student reportedly confessed to police of killing and burning his mother's body in Thiruvananthapuram.

Ryan re-run case: Shocking details

LUCKNOW: A Class 1 student was attacked in school with a knife, allegedly by a girl who is his senior, in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow - a case that is chillingly similar to the murder of a seven-year-old at Gurgaon's Ryan International School.

The police said on Tuesday morning, a Class 6 girl of Brightland School called the six-year-old boy, took him to the toilet and attacked him with a kitchen knife, which has been found. The 11-year-old girl had told the child, "If I attack you and harm you, only then will the school announce a holiday.

The school's principal Rachit Manas allegedly hid the incident for a day. He has been arrested for negligence. Security cameras in the school allegedly didn't cover the toilet where the incident took place, as they should have. Hair has been found on the boy that matches the girl's hair. We have sent it for DNA profiling. The incident involves children, so we will bring the matter before a juvenile justice board," said senior police officer Deepak Kumar. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the boy in hospital today; he has deep wounds on the chest and stomach, but is out of danger.

I was informed by the school that my son is injured, that he has been attacked with knife by a girl," said the boy's father. As news of the attack spread and images went viral on social media, many parents panicked about the safety of their children. The director of the school, Veena Vyas, said, "I am taking all the precautions in view of Ryan International school case.

Last year, seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur, a Class 2 student in the Ryan International School, was found with his throat slit near a school washroom. The police have charged a 16-year-old student who, they say, believed that a death would force the school to put off an exam and a parent-teacher meeting he was desperate to avoid. The Ryan killing jolted the nation and many schools increased their security and installed more CCTV cameras.

Sisters steal baby boy to stop father from remarrying

Police arrested two sisters from Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura district on Monday for allegedly stealing a newborn from a government hospital in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, but they left the baby on a roadside with a note and a feeding bottle three days later.

The suspects, identified as Shivani Devi and Priyanka Devi, aged 23 and 20, said before officers they wanted to gift a baby boy to their mother who was suffering from depression as their father was planning to remarry after their 12-year-old brother died two years ago.

The women stole the baby on January 10, but were overcome by fear after reading in newspapers about police trying to catch the culprits. They abandoned the boy on January 13 near Rarah village with a handwritten appeal that whoever found him should inform police that this is the baby stolen on January 10.

Bharatpur superintendent of police Anil Kumar Tank said investigators identified the siblings through CCTV camera footage from the hospital. The two women were seen in the video riding a scooter, while a man at the bicycle and motorbike parking lot of the hospital remembered the vehicle’s registration number.

We arrested the sisters from their native village, Swarupa Naugaon, in Mathura under Section 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC and charged them with stealing a baby,” the district police chief said.

The women allegedly did a recce in Bharatpur and targeted the son of 30-year-old Manish, whose wife had delivered the baby around 4am on January 10 at a community health centre in nearby Pahari town and was shifted to the government women’s hospital under Mathura Gate police station for better care. They took away the boy around 2. 30pm when the mother was sleeping. But the hospital surveillance video revealed the culprits and Manish’s father-in-law, Saddique Mev, registered a complaint.

Police superintendent Tank said the two women told police that they initially tried to adopt a boy to stop father Laxman Singh from taking another wife for a son, underscoring a largely patriarchal society’s obsession with a male heir.

Also, they approached nurses in hospitals to know if they could buy a baby from a poor family. But the sisters gave up because of the long legal process for adoption, and strict laws and punishment against any distress sale of babies.

Shivani is a teacher at a private school, married and lives with her husband at Pali Kheda in Mathura. Priyanka is married too, lives in Agra and studying for her graduation in arts.

Surat: Childless ragpicker ‘finds’ 10-day-old infant in trash

Police have taken custody of an infant, which was allegedly found by a childless ragpicker couple in a garbage container in Surat, and registered a case against unidentified persons for abandoning the child. The 10-day-old baby has now been admitted to a city hospital, where his condition is stated to be stable. The police action came following complaints that the ragpicker couple — 32-year-old Gorakh alias Kalu Vasava, a native of Nandurbar district in Maharashtra, and his wife Anita — had stolen the child.

During questioning, Vasava told the police that while he was collecting garbage near Railway culvert at Sahara Darwaja on Tuesday morning, he found a brown colour bag. On opening the bag, he found a child. He considered the child as a gift from the God and took him to his home.

But as the child was crying, the couple approached a woman in her neighbourhood to feed the infant as she was lactating. On hearing the cries of the baby, the neighbours alerted the police, alleging that the ragpicker couple had stolen the baby,” police said, quoting Vasava.

Everybody suspected that we had stolen the infant. But when I showed the brown colour bag and also the spot from where I had found the child, the police realised that the incident was true and I did not steal the boy. We assured the police that we will take care of the child infant if it is handed over to us, without any legal trouble,” Vasava said.

Inspector H M Gohil said police were trying to find out who put the baby in garbage container. We are checking CCTV footage from the areas around the container. Allegations were made that the child was a stolen one, but we are investigating. At present, it is difficult to say anything,” he said.
