Pediatrician 's  Response

Choked voice and cough along with fever suggest that your kid most probably has a throat infection.
I can be viral or bacterial. Its better that you have him examined by a pediatrician. If the doctor feels findings are suggestive of a bacterial infection, he might advise antibiotics.

And regarding crocin, appropriate dose should be given in appropriate intervals. Usual dosage is 15mg per kg per dose given four times a day.
Since your son`s weight is on the higher side, he needs correct dosage.

You can ask him to go gargling with warm salt water if he can do it.

Since he has a stomach ache too, I would suggest you to get him examined by a doctor than self medications. Usually in viral illnesses, kids develop gastritis, in which pain is felt in upper abdomen, and he will be okay if treated for that.
Wish a speedy recovery for your son.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response
NSAID (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) are useful to bring down fever - but can not be given, because they can cause stomach pain / the boy, you say, has stomach pain already.
The dose of 'Crocin' might not have been enough.
Tepid sponging is of great help.
It is too early to guess any cause. It could be anything - dengue is now common / abdominal pain may suggest appendix / many possibilities.
The best solution is TO SEE A CHILD SPECIALIST as soon as possible. He needs examination, may be some tests too.
Take care
Wishing him speedy recovery
Good luck
