“The incident happened when a cricket ball went to a nearby hut while youths were playing, following which the youth was attacked with sharp weapons, killed and his body thrown in a pond,” Maharaj said.

The Patna SSP said a police outpost has been set up at the spot and additional personnel deployed to maintain peace.
