On September 22, police received information from Lok Nayak Jayaprakash (LNJP) Hospital that a 12-year-old boy was admitted after physical torture, officials said. Officials said a police team reached the hospital and met the boy's parents, who refused to give a statement. After this, the police arranged for a counselor from an organization named Sakhi and the boy and his mother were counselled, a senior police officer said.
