In a tragic incident, two children aged five and ten were found dead inside a parked car in Nizamabad on Wednesday morning. The children had gone missing on Tuesday afternoon and after searching for them in the nearby localities, their parents had filed a missing complaint with the Nizamabad town police.

Syed Riyaz (10) and Mohammaed Badruddin (5) had gone out to play after informing their parents around 3.30 pm on Tuesday, shortly after which they went missing. Since the kids didn’t return home until evening, the parents filed a complaint with the police. However, on Wednesday morning, when one of the neighbours’ opened their cars, the kids were found dead on the backseat of the vehicle.

Speaking to TV5, the owner of the vehicle said the car was parked in front of the house for the past three days. “The vehicle was locked and it was only this morning that I unlocked the car when I noticed a foul smell emanating from inside. Both the children were found dead. I immediately called the neighbours who in turn informed the kids’ parents. We do not know how they managed to get inside the car which was locked for the past three days,” he said.

Speaking to TNM, Nizamabad ACP G Srinivas Kumar said it’s still unknown how or why the children got inside the car. “We suspect that the children would have entered the car while playing and would have locked themselves up. As they couldn’t open the doors, they could have died of suffocation,” he added.

According to reports, the bodies of the children have been handed over to their parents after completing the post-mortem.

Barely a month ago, a two-year-old child had died of suffocation after he unintentionally locked himself inside his father’s car in Hyderabad. Sajid had locked himself inside with the car keys and later fell unconscious in the car. He died while he was being taken to the hospital.

In May, in a similar incident, a 7-year-old boy had suffocated and passed away after getting locked in a car in Visakhapatnam. The child had entered the car, which was not locked, wanting to play with some toys that he saw inside the vehicle. The car locked automatically after which the child died due to suffocation.
