Juvenile held for abduction and murder of 6-year-old boy

A juvenile has been apprehended for the alleged abduction and murder of six-year-old boy from central Delhi’s Ranjit Nagar, police said on Saturday.

The 17-year-old, who is a neighbour of the victim, also told police that he desired to purchase an expensive phone with the ransom money, said a police official.

As per the police, on Thursday evening when Ganesh was playing outside his home, the accused lured the boy with some mobile games and abducted him. About 9 pm, he made a phone call to the boy’s father, Pramod, allegedly demanding Rs 1.5 lakh for the safe release of the boy.

Pramod is a fruit seller and has his shop is in a central Delhi market. When he returned home on Thursday, he found his son missing and went out looking for him. Meanwhile, he received the ransom call. He had no means to pay the ransom money and so he reported the matter to the police.

On Friday evening, Ganesh’s body was found in a park in south-west Delhi’s Narayana area with his throat slit. Meanwhile, police had started tracking the phone number by which the ransom call was made.
