New Delhi: An eight-year-old boy died after he sustained a head injury following a scuffle between two groups of minor boys in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar Thursday, police said.
The incident occurred in the morning when the students of a madrasa objected to playing by a few local boys on a vacant land in front of the acadamic institute, they said.
The local boys insisted on playing since they claimed there was no other vacant place nearby. A scuffle broke in which the student sustained an internal injury on his head, said Vijay Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South).
He was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead, he added.
The boy was a native of Mewat in Haryana and his parents have been informed, Kumar said.
He said the body has been sent for post-mortem and a case under appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code has been registered.
Four minor boys, who are suspected to have been involved in the incident, have been apprehended, police said, adding an investigation is underway.
