Two teenagers kidnap and kill employer's five-year-old son for meagre pay

murder

AGRA: Two teenagers allegedly killed their employer’s five-year-old son in Aligarh’s Raghupura village as they were upset with his father for paying them a paltry sum of Rs 30 to Rs 50 for the work they did in his fields every day. The entire murder and the subsequent destruction of evidence was carried out by the suspects on tips that they had picked up after watching Hindi crime serials.

The duo has been apprehended and sent to juvenile home after being produced before a juvenile justice board. Aditya was allegedly kidnapped and then strangled to death by the two boys, both 16-year-old.

Police said the victim was kidnapped on February 13 when he was playing outside his house. His father lodged a police complaint against unidentified persons after he was unable to locate him. The FIR was registered under section 363 (kidnapping) of IPC. Two days later, the boy’s body was recovered from a tube well.

Superintendent of police (rural) Shubham Patel told TOI that during interrogation, the boys confessed to have killed Aditya after they kidnapped him from outside his house. They told police that they were upset with Aditya’s father and decided to kill one of his sons to take revenge and hurt him. As Aditya was younger among the two siblings, he was an easy target for them, said police.

After they kidnapped him, they took him to fields where they strangled him to death. Later on the fateful day, they took the body to a nearby jungle and buried it in a pit after placing it in a plastic bag. Next day on February 14, a rumour spread across the village that some tantrik had told the victim’s family that the boy will be found at a tube well.

After hearing this, the accused took out the body from the pit and tried to burn his clothes and chappal in order to destroy evidence and left his body at a nearby tube well.

The SP said that the duo used to watch Crime Patrol and CID and took the idea of destroying evidence from them. The victim’s partially burnt clothes and slippers were also recovered by the police.
