In a heart rendering incident, a seven year old Christian boy, Anugrag , fondly called as Anmol was brutally killed on Nov 17 in Tadi-Obri, Dungarpur.

It was reported that Anugrag never return home after he left his home at about 10 a.m. to attend Sunday school.

On Monday, his father submitted a petition of a missing person at Sadar Thana after friends and relatives were not able to find him after a frantic search.

The same day about 4 p.m., Anugrag’s body was found in a small pond. His face was mutilated beyond recognition, his throat slit, his left leg toes chopped off and his skin pulled off from his right hand besides other injuries in the body.

“The Christians constantly face strong opposition in the area where Anugrag was killed. We feel sad that such atrocity has been meted out to an innocent boy.” a local Christian Priest told EFI News.

Police registered an FIR but no arrests had been made at press time.
