A five-year-old boy, who was abducted two days ago, was found dead on Wednesday in a village near Patna, police said, adding that a woman was arrested in the case. Shivam Kumar was abducted from Hulasitola village by a neighbour on Monday when he was playing. The child was later killed. His body was found in a drain outside the village on Wednesday, police said.

"It appears that Shivam was strangulated to death as there was a deep injury mark on his neck," said Rajeev Ranjan Singh, Maner Police Station officer-in-charge. Singh said Poonam Devi was arrested after the victim's father alleged revenge killing by the neighbour.
