The labourer saw the skeleton on Wednesday but got scared and ran off. After gathering courage the next day, he reported it to Wadala Truck Terminal police.

Furkan’s parents, residents of Dinbandhu Nagar, were then taken to the spot and after they identified the clothes found there, the remains were taken to Sion Hospital. The cops also found a beer bottle next to the skeleton.

The boy was last seen playing outside his house before he went missing on October 13. Police have registered a case under Section 302 (murder) of IPC and have formed teams to investigate the matter.
