The desire for owning a smartphone led a 21-year old man to kill an 11-year-old boy at Rampura village in Detroj taluka of Ahmedabad district early last month. Ahmedabad Rural Police arrested the accused Pravin Bajania, a resident of Kaaz village near Rampura on Wednesday.
The incident took place on August 2, when the victim, Punaji Amratji Thakor, was using his smartphone while on his way back home. Desire got the better of the accused Bajania when he saw the boy with the smartphone and decided to snatch it from him.
However, the boy resisted and started screaming when the accused tried to take away his smartphone. Unfortunately, Bajania overpowered the young lad, dragged him into nearby shrubs and slit his throat with a sharp-edged weapon to prevent him from drawing attention with his screaming. The accused then dug a hole, buried the dead boy and fled with his smartphone. He switched off the phone and thus avoided detection for a long time, according to police sources.
However, when the accused switched on the phone on Tuesday and started it, police traced its location and nabbed him from Detroj.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
