Nine-year-old Mysuru boy kidnapped for Rs 4 lakh ransom found murdered; one detained | Mysuru News


MYSURU: A nine-year-old boy kidnapped for a Rs 4-lakh ransom on Wednesday was found murdered and his body was found in a bush in Hunsur taluk of Mysuru district on Thursday.
Superintendent of police R Chethan said Karthik, son of trader Nagaraj from Hanagod in Hunsur, was kidnapped late on Wednesday and was found his throat slit by Thursday noon. Investigations are going on to establish where the boy was kidnapped from, where he was kept, when he was murdered and people involved in the crime.
A suspect has been detained in the case, the SP said. Police claimed that four more persons, including two women, have been detained for questioning. One woman is said to be from the same village who was closely moniroing the trader’s activities. Karthik, a class IV student, went missing after he left home to buy crackers from a village shop on Wednesday evening. His father Nagaraj received a call from an unlisted phone number around 7.30pm and was informed that his son has been kidnapped.
The trader rushed home to find his son missing. In a second call, the kidnapper allegedly demanded Rs 4 lakh to set the boy free before switching off the phone. Nagaraj, aided by villagers, searched for his son in nearby areas before approaching police in the night.
Senior police officers interrogated a few suspicious persons in the village and detained one of them. On his information, cops reached the crime scene – a village called Kunterikere – where his body was recovered from a nearby bush. Sources said the accused, possibly from the same or neighbouring village, may be an acquaintance of trader Nagaraj.
A source said the kidnappers may have developed cold feet after making the ransom call and eliminated the boy over fears that their identity may be revealed.
