Murdered before he learnt to run

Prince Yadav, no heir apparent, but surely the crowning jewel of his parents, was mysteriously done to death after being kidnapped by unknown killers.



The ghastly murder of a barely two-and-a-half-year-old baby boy at Madharbani Colliery in Durgapur, about 250 km from here, has left both the police and local people shocked and groping for reasons for the heinous crime.

Delayed reports reaching here on Thursday said Prince Yadav went missing from his residence close to a colliery under ECL (Eastern Colliery Ltd) since Tuesday night. After a thorough search through the night, police recovered the kid’s body on Wednesday from an abandoned pit of Madharbani Colliery close to the village.

Murderers gagged the kid, folded his hands behind him and draped electric wires around his neck before killing him.To ensure that the body remained hidden as long as possible, they dug a hole in the colliery pit and buried the boy there.
The ghastliness of the crime made the investigating officials wonder at the motive behind the murder as no clue has emerged so far as to why the murderers had chosen this beastly manner to kill an innocent toddler.

There were neither any threat calls prior to the crime nor was there a demand for ransom, senior police officials said.
