GHAZIABAD: In an act of brutality, a 16-year-old boy was kidnapped, tortured and hung to death by nine men and women who accused him of stealing a mobile phone, police said on Thursday.

The victim's distraught mother Sunaina Jha told police that her son was dragged away from their house in Wasimpur Phase I here around 8.30 Thursday night.

He was taken to the Arun Enclave house of one of the kidnappers, Naeem, who accused the boy of stealing his phone.

The victim was reportedly tortured, his legs were tied with a rope and he was hung from the ventilator of the bathroom.

A neighbour alerted police about the murder. The mother rushed to Naeem's house and found her son hanging.

She identified the other abductors as Naeem's wife Kousar, Shafeeque, Zahid, Shahbuddin, Ashima, Dillu, Sazid and Sachin.

Superintendent of Police Jagdish Sharma said four people had been arrested for the crime and a hunt was on for the others.

I hope he really did take the phone and that it was a really nice phone.

Most of the abductors’ names appear to be Muslim.

In Nepal in 1982, on a bus, I watched a small young man pickpocket me.

I put him in a headlock, yelled at him in Nepali for my money back, and eventually let him go (it was only $1.30).

My teacher wouldn’t let him off the bus, and led him to the police station in the town we were in.

The policeman immediately put the young man in foot manacles on the floor, and commenced to whip him with a cat-o-nine-tails made of polyester rope.

I was asked to come back later.

2 days later, I checked in, and the policeman was very apologetic: “I’m sorry, Sahib, I beat him for 2 days and couldn’t get your $1.30 back.”

Use whatever means to extract information from the four to aid in finding the others.

Throw them all in a cage with daily water and wait until there is only one survivor and then execute him/her.

Violence against Indians! I hope that Liz Warren doesn’t try to use this against Scott Brown.

I knew a guy in Baghdad back in the 80s. A decade earlier, he was in the Peace Corps in Afghanistan. The team had a beat-up old Lada outside their hovel. A cop rapped on their door. He had a yute in hand. He told this guy that boy was trying to steal the hubcaps. Buddy told the cop, it was nothing and to let the kid go. Cop told buddy that’s not how it works. So the cop hauled the yute down to the station house. For punishment, the cops stapled his ears to his head.

Exactly -- not ethnic but looks like standard Moslem on non-Moslem violence

Looks like it happened outside Delhi.

India should have kicked all the Moslems to pakistan during partition

Yes. All non-Muslim countries need to do the same. Instead we’ve got a Muslim in the Oval Office.
