According to the police and the victim’s family, Tuhin was sleeping with his parents on the same bed but when his father woke up in the middle of the night to go to the washroom he saw the door of the house was open and could not find his son anywhere.
Then, the victim's family along with their neighbours started searching for the boy in the nearby area and after a while they found his dead body hanging from a tree and reported to the police.
