He was handed over to the police after inspection
The child was taken for a medical examination by the Border Security Force after a preliminary interrogation. The inspection was carried out from the community health center in Khawda village. The boy was taken to Khawda police station. Preliminary inquiries revealed that the child had been arguing with family members, officials said.
