A game of kabaddi between two class 8 students led to the death of a 13-year-old boy in Hyderabad’s Shamshabad area on Tuesdayevening.

According to reports, 13-year-old Ramesh* and four other boys went to play kabaddi at the playground on the premises of their school in Palmakila.

During the game, an argument broke out between the accused and the deceased, and they threw punches at each other, according to the police.

After the fight, they started heading home, but got into an argument and began beating each other again.

The accused then hit the victim on his neck with his fist, following which the latter immediately collapsed, even as his sister came and tried to intervene.

“The victim's house was first, while the boy in conflict stays a little further. As the 14-year-old was passing in front of Ramesh's house, the two again had an argument and started fighting…At that time, the victim's parents were at their agriculture field. With the help of locals, his sister moved him to a hospital, where he was declared brought dead,'' Shamshabad inspector Krishna Prasad told the Times of India.

The minor’s body was shifted to the Osmania General Hospital for a post-mortem and a case has been registered under section 302 (murder) of the IPC.

A similar incident had occurred in April this year, when a fight over a game of cricket led to the murder of a youngster in Vijayawada.

Kiran Kumar, a 23-year-old engineering student, was playing with some children when the ball accidentally hit a woman.

Kiran tried to make peace and apologised to the woman. However, her son reached the spot and picked up an argument. A scuffle broke out between the two. The accused went to his house and returned with a knife. He stabbed Kiran Kumar in his chest, leading to his death.
