Berhampur: A 22-year-old engineering student was arrested in connection with the death of a four-year-old boy in Odisha’s Ganjam district, police said.

Sources said the boy was found in a pool of blood on the terrace of his neighbour’s house on Tuesday.

As per preliminary investigation, the engineering student had allegedly assaulted the boy sexually and fearing arrest, smashed the child’s head with an iron door of the under-construction house, they said.

After the incident, the accused had fled the area and he was arrested near Aska. The exact cause of the boy’s death could be ascertained only after getting the post-mortem report, police said.

The incident came to light after the victim’s parents did not find the boy in the house for long hours and later spotted him in a pool of blood on the terrace of the neighbour’s house. He was taken to a hospital in Dharakote, where the doctor declared him dead.

Meanwhile, human rights activist Rabindra Mishra urged to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to direct the state government to take stringent action against the accused and pay a compensation of Rs 20 lakh to the victim’s parents.
