Police have arrested a teenager in connection with the murder of a 13-year-old boy who had gone missing from his house in Ullal near Mangaluru, Karnataka.

According to sources, a fight between the victim Akeef and the accused over a PUBG game match had culminated in the murder.

They said Akeef always played PUBG games and used to win regularly.

He had come across another minor boy, his neighbour, during a visit to a mobile store.

Both used to play the game and when Akeef started winning the games, the other boy suspected that someone else was playing on behalf of Akeef.

He then challenged Akeef to play the game sitting together.

Akeef agreed and on Saturday night both sat across and Akeef lost the game.

An argument ensued and Akeef reportedly threw a stone at the other boy.

Angry over this, the latter hit Akeef with a heavy stone.

Akeef began to bleed profusely and collapsed.

The other boy panicked and covered the body with banana leaves and coconut fronds and fled the spot.

Ullal police are interrogating the accused minor to know whether other boys were with him while committing the crime, the sources said.

Describing the incident as unfortunate, city police commissioner N Shashi Kumar, who visited the spot, urged parents to be watchful while handing over mobile phones to children.
