In a heartbreaking event, the deceased body of a fifth-grade pupil, who had been reported missing on Saturday, was found with a cut throat near a pond in Purbakacha village, under the authority of the Jagatpur police station in Cuttack district on Sunday.

Sources reveal that the young victim had faced scolding from his parents the day before, as they were dissatisfied with his lack of focus on studies. Subsequently, the child left home and did not return. Concerned about his prolonged absence, the parents launched a search, but their efforts proved futile.

The following morning, local residents stumbled upon the minor's lifeless body in a bushy area near the pond. Law enforcement was notified and promptly arrived at the scene to initiate an investigation.
