The incident took place in Dangarwada village where the boy, Neeraj, was working in fields with his mother. The boy was killed on the spot in the attack, SHO Rawajana Dungar police station Vinod Kumar said.

The SHO said district administration officials will be reaching the spot to hold talks with the villagers and the post-mortem will be conducted after the meeting.
