Khandwa, MP, May 21 : An inmate was killed during a fight with another who was grievously injured on Tuesday at a juvenile home in this district headquarters, law enforcement authorities said.
After learning of the homicide, the Collector and the Superintendent of Police rushed to the correctional facility. A magisterial inquiry was ordered. The deceased was identified as a 17-year-old from Chhipabad who was at the institution for approximately the past four months after being charged with motorcycle theft.
In the morning, a dispute ensued between him and a minor – from Rameshwar Tekda – who is accused of a similar offence. The hurt boy is undergoing treatment at the District infirmary. The facility’s officials were being tight-lipped about the incident. Earlier, there have been episodes of occupants fleeing. UNI
