Bodies of two boys found in shack
The father of dead boys aged 14 and 15 works as a labourer
Decomposed bodies of two teenaged brothers with head injuries was found in a shack in Chikkanayakanahalli in HSR Layout on Saturday afternoon.
The dead children were identified as Venu (15) and Pavan (14), sons of Gopal and Bharatamma, residents of Jannasandra.
According to the police, there were injuries on the heads of the two boys and they are yet to ascertain the weapon used by the assailants.
The murder came to light in the afternoon when a passerby observed that a foul stench was emanating from the shack. He opened the door only to find the two bodies in a highly decomposed state after which he alerted the police. But the police said they have no clue who gave them the information as he had called them from a coin booth. The police suspect the boys may have been murdered four days ago. The shack was built for a security guard posted on a site owned by one Gopal Reddy.
The police said that the father of the dead boys, Gopal, was a manual labourer, and their mother, Bharatamma, worked as a domestic help at an apartment complex.
Gopal filed a complaint with the police.
The parents of the boys were not in town for nearly a month, and they were clueless why the boys were killed, the police said.
A case of murder was registered.
