Daijiworld Media Network-Mangaluru (DRD)  

Mangaluru, July 1: A boy had complained that he was attacked by people of a different community recently while he was on his way back home from a madrasa in Surathkal. His shirt was torn. The complaint has created a tense situation in Surathkal and surrounding areas.

However, the police contended that the boy had concocted a false story to deal with attention deficiency at home as well as school. Finally on Yhursday, June 30, the boy confessed with the police that he had lied. He admitted that he had torn his shirt himself using a pen, said city police commissioner N Shashi Kumar.

Based on the the boys preliminary statements, CCTV footage from the said site of attack and circumstantial evidences, the police summoned him for questioning. It was discovered that his boy from a poor family background had an inferiority complex since he was not so good at studies.

The police have recorded the boy's statement in the presence of the Child Welfare Committee doctor. Police also held a discussion with the boy's parents and the community leaders.

    Kids telling lies about head ache, grand mother not well, is common. But a madassa boy lying that Hndus beat him up - is also not surprising in today;s time. Hate at such young age?

    Don’t be sad. Few years back in Toronto two school Pakistan girls created similar drama to get sympathy from govt and general public towards religion and have more people feel for them and community. Finally it turned out to be fake story created and many hands involved with it . These things don’t take lightly. Small cancer turns civiar. Many countries gone to civil war from such things. Unfortunately people did not learn from mistakes and still support. Some religion is more important than humanity.

    No need of counseling. It is understood easily that small childrens too have the money problems nowadays. No money In hand or with parents, so frustration in this young age.
