Nashik: There are lives that are precious; there are lives that come with a rather cheap price tag, so much, that these lives are snatched at the drop of a hat, sometimes for reasons as trivial as not obeying commands.
If you think I am exaggerating, thereâ€™s 200% truth in what I am saying.
In Nashik, the price a 13-year-old had to pay for not getting cigarettes for two youths was his life. Yes, he was brutally murdered and if police reports are to be believed, thereâ€™s an element of sexual harassment as well in the case.
The police arrested two youths in connection with the murder of a 13-year-old boy â€“ Golu, alias Vishal Bhalerao, whose body was found in half-naked condition.
His father Shaligram, a plumber, reported that the two youths, who have now been arrested, had argued with his son after he refused to fetch them cigarettes two days before the murder.
A police officer said, “There is more to the case than what meets the eye. The victim was found naked below the waist. Things will get clearer during the course of investigations and after the post-mortem reports arrive.”
