Nagpur: A 15-year old school boy was done to death in cold blood over a trivial matter in Gaddigodam area of the city. Three accused have been arrested while one is absconding.
According to DCP Zone-2 Sanjay Latkar the deceased has been identified as Roshan Rajesh Dhongale, resident of Gautam Nagar, Gaddigodam. Roshan had a friendship with a girl and used to sit with her at a vacant ground adjacent to railway tracks in Gaddigodam almost daily. However, Roshan’s chatting with the girl was objected by the four youngsters Mithun Mhaske, Chandu Mhaske, Sonu Savarkar and Piyush Ghodeswar and they had doled a warning to Roshan to not to do so. On February 29 (Monday) too the four youngsters had put Roshan on notice and had again warned of dire consequences. Scared by the warning, Roshan had apprised his father about the incident.
On Wednesday, Roshan, as usual, went to meet the girl at the same spot near railway tracks after completing school studies. The four youngsters spotted Roshan again and in a fit of rage started showering blows after blows with fists and legs. Three of the accused fled the spot leaving Roshan with grievous injuries. However, a person named Somkuwar witnessed the fight and alerted Roshan’s father. But even before the father could reach the spot, nearby residents rushed Roshan to Mayo Hospital where he was pronounced ‘brought dead.’
Deceased Roshan’s father Rajesh Dhongale said that one of the attackers Mithun Mhaske had taken him to Mayo Hospital on his motorcycle and after reaching there, he came to know about Roshan’s death. In the meanwhile, Mithun slyly absconded from Mayo Hospital.
Roshan was the only child to Dhongale couple.

The provisional cause of death was haemorrhage and shock associated with haemoperitoneum due to lacerations of spleen due to blunt trauma to abdomen.
