Karnataka Police have arrested three persons, including the mother of a 10-year-old boy, who was murdered in February, Bengaluru DCP South East Srinath Mahadev Joshi told on Friday.

Mico Layout police investigating the case identified the accused as the friend of the boy’s mother, his lover and the mother herself, who was an accomplice.

The arrests were made on August 27, soon after the mother registered a complaint of her missing son after maintaining silence for six months.

The police has also recovered a plastic pipe used to assault the boy, the car used to shift his body and torch, Joshi stated.

The main accused had quarrelled with the boy and assaulted him with a plastic pipe when his mother was not present at his residence.

The incident had happened on February 7, 2021. Later, he had called his lover and the mother of the boy to his house and shown them the dead body.

The main accused and his lover made the mother promise not to tell about the incident to anyone.

After convincing the mother, the couple had sent her to her parent’s house.

The prime accused along with his lover then shifted the body to his car.

They have told the police that they threw away the dead body in an isolated place near Baragur in Tamil Nadu.

However, the mother lodged a complaint with Mico Layout police in August to avoid suspicion. The police grew suspicious about the other two accused who accompanied her to the station to lodge the complaint. They kept a close watch on their movements and the main accused spilled the beans soon.

As many as 42 students and one teacher of a government-run residential school for girls in Telangana’s Sangareddy district have tested positive for Covid-19.

The cases have come to light at Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Gurukul school at Muthangi village in Sangareddy district, about 50 km from Hyderabad.

Of the 491 students at the school, Covid test was conducted on Sunday on 261 students. A total of 42 students were found infected.

Health authorities were conducting tests on remaining students on Monday. A health official said all 27 teachers and staff members were screened and one teacher was found positive.

The samples of the students who tested positive were sent to Hyderabad for genome sequencing. The official said the infected students were kept in isolation at the hostel in school premises and they were all stable.

A student had taken ill three days ago. Since she was showing suspected symptoms of Covid, the school authorities decided to conduct tests on all students.

This is the third incident of students testing positive in large numbers at any educational institution in Telangana during the last 10 days. Last week, Mahindra University near Hyderabad was shut down after 25 students and five staff members tested positive for the virus.

The authorities conducted Covid tests for 1,700 students and staff members. A total of 25 students, one faculty member and four support staff were tested positive. The university declared a holiday for 15 days and began online classes from Monday.

Earlier, 29 students of a government-run residential school and junior college for girls in Khammam district had tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The cases were reported at the school and junior college in Wyra town. The school authorities conducted tests for all 550 students after a couple of students showed suspected symptoms.

This was the first time since reopening of residential schools in the state last month that such a large number of students were found positive.

Educational institutions in Telangana reopened from September 1. However, the High Court allowed reopening of residential schools in the last week of October after the education department gave an assurance that all preventive measures will be taken.

Dead bodies of 2 Covid patients found in mortuary 15 months later

 In a shocking incident, the dead bodies of two Covid patients were found 15 months after they died at the ESI hospital mortuary in Rajajinagar in Bengaluru.

The authorities were planning to cremate the bodies on Monday as the family and relatives of one of the deceased did not show any interest in taking the body for final rites. And, the police were not able to trace another deceased person’s whereabouts and family.

The bodies were recovered three days ago at the cold storage when the workers went there for cleaning. The negligence of the staff and doctors is said to be the reason for the dead bodies remaining at the cold storage without disposal.

The bodies were identified with the help of tags as Durga (40), a resident of Chamarajpet and Muniraju (35), a resident of K.P. Agrahara in Bengaluru. Both were admitted to the ESI hospital for the treatment of Corona infection in July, 2020.

However, as they succumbed to the deadly virus, their bodies were shifted to an old mortuary to be handed over to the BBMP for disposal. As the Covid protocol, the BBMP, the civic agency, was to cremate the dead bodies of the Corona victims and the bodies were not given to the families.

The ESI hospital’s old mortuary has six cold storages for keeping the dead bodies. However, during the spike in the Covid deaths, it had become difficult for the hospital authorities to keep the dead bodies at the mortuary.

The government had constructed a new mortuary, which was inaugurated in December, 2020. As the new mortuary started functioning, due to negligence these two bodies remained in freezers.

The cleaning staff, who went to clean the old mortuary, noticed foul smell emanating from freezers and found bodies. The Rajajinagar police have taken up the case and tried to track relatives. Durga’s husband is dead and her family has not shown interest in taking her body. The police were trying to find out the address of Muniraju’s family members.

The development has drawn sharp reactions from the public against the ESI hospital staff and doctors for utter negligence in handling of dead bodies.
