The deceased boy is Mohammad Fahad, son of Ayesha and Abbas couple of Periya.  He was studying in  third standard in a local government school.

 The accused has been identified as Vijayan (30). The incident took place when Fahad along with his little sister and another child from a neighbouring house was  on way to school. As the children were passing through a deserted area, the accused  Vijayan  tried to terrify the kids and in a flash of a second stabbed Fahad with a knife. The little boy succumbed soon after. The accused was caught hold of by locals who rushed to the spot on hearing the cries of the children. They tied him to a tree and thrashed him before handing him over to the police.

It has been gathered that the accused was arrested a couple of years ago after he tried to terrify locals by stating that a bomb was planted on a railway track. Locals say he was mentally ill and was presently engaged in coolie works.

Bekal police are investigating the case.
