The child was punched and kicked by the shopkeeper, Baburam and three other people. The shopkeeper also tied the boy to a pole and left him there for the night where the boy spent all night hungry and crying for help.

However, the boy managed to free himself later and ran away. When police learnt about the incident, the shopkeeper was booked and arrested.

The police are also looking for the 10-year-old boy who was thrashed. The boy has not been located and police are questioning the shopkeeper who thrashed the boy and meted out the harsh punishment to him.
