PATNA: Abductors killed a class six student in Bihar as his father failed to pay a ransom of Rs30,000. Victim’s father runs a tea stall, earning little over Rs 150 a day.
The shocking incident took place in Purnia district of Bihar yesterday.
Reports said 12-year-old boy identified as Rahul Kumar was playing near Maranga locality of the district on Thursday evening when motorcycle-borne criminals kidnapped him.
Soon after kidnapping, the gangsters sought a ransom of Rs30,000 from victim’s father but as he expressed his incapability to pay the money soon, the abductors strangulated the boy to death. Today, his body was recovered from under a roadside bridge.
“We recovered the body of the victim packed in a gunny bag from under a bridge. Apparently he was strangulated to death,” a local senior police official Raj Kumar Sah told the media on Friday.
The police have arrested two persons in this connection and have announced to speedily try the case.
On Wednesday, the criminals killed a two-year-old child in Begusarai district after his father failed to pay an extortion of Rs50,000 to them.
