12 Year old Hindu boy kidnapped and burned alive by Muslims in India


[IANSA 12-year-old schoolboy was burnt alive in broad daylight on Monday in Punjab’s Malerkotla township, trigerring local protests that blocked the highway connecting Ludhiana and Patiala. Malerkotla is a Muslim-dominated area in Punjab.

The boy, identified as Vidhu Jain, was on his way to his brothers’ schools to drop his lunch box that he had forgotten home. In an unexpected turn, suspects kidnapped the boy and then poured petrol on his body before setting him on fire. He was brought to the local hospital with 100 percent burns and died.

The incident took place at around noon on Monday. The police say that the motive is being probed. Angry relatives and locals ransacked buses and blocked the highways in protest. The shopkeepers at Malerkotla and Dhuri observed complete shut down after the incident. No arrests have been made so far while investigations are underway.

The crime, sources said, could have also been committed for ransom. The family of the boy runs a departmental store in the township.
Hindustan Times reported:
Following a recent argument over a kite string, two people burnt alive the 12-year-old son of a kite seller at Malerkotla in Sangrur district on Monday morning.

Vidhu Jain, a resident of Chota Chowk, received 100% burns and succumbed to them on his way to a private hospital in Ludhiana.

The incident took place around 11.30 am when Vidhu, a student of Class 7 at AS Jain School, was reportedly going to hand over the lunch box to his younger brother at Basant Valley School.

SSP Mandeep Singh Sidhu said shopkeepers saw Vidhu, who was ablaze, running down the market lane and screaming in Nawab Da Bagh area and doused the fire.

“The boy was in a serious condition when the police reached the spot. In the presence of the police and his father Naveen Jain, Vidhu said two persons forcibly took him to an under-construction colony and set him ablaze,” Sidhu said, adding that one of the assailants was “purportedly minor”.

“According to the boy’s statement, he could not identify the two but could recognise them as he had had a heated argument with them over the kite string three days ago,” the SSP said.

“The boy told his father that the argument had taken place in the presence of their servant who was present at the shop, Sidhu said, adding that the police were trying to locate the servant who was missing after the incident.

The shopkeepers rushed the boy to a local hospital, where he was referred to the Ludhiana hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead.

As the word spread, people from all communities gathered and blocked the Ludhiana-Malerkotla and Patiala-Malerkotla roads. They also ransacked five buses and damaged a few two-wheelers. The police resorted to a mild lathicharge to disperse the protesters, who demanded the immediate arrest of the accused.

Ruling out the possibility of it being a communal attack, the SSP said they hoped to arrest the accused at the earliest. “Though a few people are trying to give it a communal colour, there was nothing of the sort,” he said.

Meanwhile, shopkeepers at Malerkotla and Dhuri observed a complete shutdown after the incident and joined the protest. Heavy police force from Barnala and Patiala districts was called in to avoid any untoward incident.

“The situation is tense but under control,” the SSP said.

  1. Raj, it is very regretful to see you LIE by addition of your own material and resorting to distortion of the News articles! The actual reported story goes as this : (ISNS-NDTV)

    Chandigarh : A 12-year-old boy was burnt alive in Punjab’s Malerkotla town after being allegedly kidnapped by unidentified people, police said.

    The victim, Vidhu Jain, was taken to a local hospital in the town, 110 km from Chandigarh, with 100 percent burns. He later succumbed to his injuries.

    Eyewitnesses told the police that the boy was going to his brother’s school to give him his tiffin when he was kidnapped.

    The incident led to protests from local residents who damaged buses and other vehicles and
    blocked highways.

    Police officials said that they were trying to identify the people who set the boy on fire.

    “We are investigating the incident,” a police officer in Malerkotla said.

    Ruling out the possibility of it being a communal attack, the SSP said they hoped to arrest the accused at the earliest. “Though a few people are trying to give it a communal colour, there was nothing of the sort,” he said.

    COMPARE THIS TO THE ONE YOU HAVE DISTORTED AND WE ASK :

    Where does it say that Muslims were involved???????????

    And you…Rahul Raj openly LIE because you lack material to malign Islam!!

    • Raj, you “forgot” to add this horrible crime too :

      A 14-year-old schoolgirl gang-raped in Amritsar!!!!

      A 14-year-old girl on her way to school was gang-raped in Punjab’s Amritsar city on Monday. And revenge is alleged to be the reason behind the ghastly crime.

      Goldy was jailed following the complaint.

      When he came out of the jail, Goldy, along with two other men, kidnapped and raped the younger sister.

      The young teenager was also threatened with dire consequences to her family if she reported the matter to the police.

      On Wednesday, the girl shared her ordeal with her elder sister, who then approached
      the police.

      Police said the teenager, in her complaint, has also alleged that two of the three suspects had also raped her elder sister in the past, but they did not file any report.

      This Goldy is NOT a Muslim!!

  2. Raj, you are supposed to remain honest. Why do you resort to dirty tactics of lying and distortion as how would we be able to respond to fake comments? Take this for example :

    Hindu times headline read : “12-year-old Malerkotla boy burnt alive after argument”.

    Now see what you, Rahul Raj, posted : “12 Year old Hindu boy kidnapped and burned alive by Muslims in India”.

    Where did you get the words “by Muslims in India” from? You have DISTORTED the whole article to suit your evil agenda of causing hatred towards the Muslim community. You were supposed to be an intelligent person then how come you have resorted to
    promulgation of cheap lies and lose of originality in substance??

    This indirectly indicates that you are out of objectives and material of Islamic hatred and that is why you have been copy pasting your long past comments over and over. We would like to know why you posted the picture of your daal bhajia initialing as Allah but to date you have not consumed that Bhajia. Why????????

    The article does NOT mention any Muslim nor does it suggest that there were Muslims involved!!!!!!!!

    Ruling out the possibility of it being a communal attack, the SSP said they hoped to arrest the accused at the earliest. “Though a few people are trying to give it a communal colour, there was nothing of the sort,” he said.(HT-Punjab)
    You have been exposed here second time trying to give it a communal colour. Remember first time was when you had edited my comments and posted thereof?

    Remain honest…Be Good, Do Good!!!!
