The Hyderabad police, which is investigating the sodomy and murder case of a 11-year-old boy, allegedly by a 17-year-old juvenile, has identified six more minors, who were also sexually abused by the accused.

When questioned by the police, the 17-year-old confessed that he had sexually abused around 15 minor boys from his neighbourhood in Barkas in the Old City area.

The Times of India reported, that six victims were identified, out of which three of them, were pursuing an education in various schools, while three others had dropped out.

“The parents are not willing to lodge a complaint against the offender. We are trying our best to convince them to lodge a complaint so that the case becomes stronger and the victims get justice," TOI quoted South Zone DCP V Satyanarayana as saying.

According to reports, the teenager worked at a paan shop, and would spend time at a playground in the area, identifying his potential victims. 

The accused would then lure his victims by offering them chocolates, and give them small amounts of money, after he sexually abused them. 

On Thursday, the body of the deceased 10-year-old was found on the rooftop of a government school in Barkas, after he had been missing since June 28 and his parents had lodged a complaint with the police. 

During the investigations, police found that he was last seen with his 17-year-old neighbour. The accused was identified with the help of CCTV footage and picked up for questioning.

Deputy Commissioner of Police V. Satyanarayana said the accused admitted that he took the victim on top of the school building and sexually assaulted him. 

Fearing that the boy might tell about his act to others, the accused murdered him by hitting him on his head with an iron rod.

Meanwhile, the police also said that the accused began committing the crime after he was sodomised by two men himself, around two years ago, and was offered Rs 20 to keep the incident a secret. 

Police have identified the two men as Mohammed Ghalib, and Mohammed Tala, and are on the lookout for them.
