A missing 11-year-old boy was found dead inside a Madrasa in Shah Chaukha village in Haryana today, police said.
The victim is identified as Sameer, a resident of village Ted under Pinangwa police station. He was studying in Dargah wala Madrasa in village Shah Chaukha and even stayed there, they said.
The boy went missing from the same Madrasa on Saturday and police recovered his decomposed body from an old room adjoining the prayer hall on Monday.
