The youth was earlier arrested for assaulting a 12-year-old compatriot boy. Sources said the father of the boy sent him to a cooperative society to buy some items. When the boy didn’t return for a long time, the worried father went in search of him and saw the boy coming out of the youth’s vehicle. The father then took the youth and the boy to the police station where the youth reportedly admitted that he assaulted the boy after the latter threatened to kill him. A case was then registered and the youth was detained.
It was during detention that the youth tried to kill himself.
