In a bone-chilling incident, a minor boy was allegedly abducted and killed for Rs 50 lakh ransom. The incident has been reported from Sarbahal area in Jharsuguda district.

According to sources, some miscreants abducted the son of a businessman and demanded Rs 50 lakh ransom. A complaint in this regard was registered on March 27.

However, on March 28, the body of the missing minor boy was found in Bargarh district, sources informed, adding that the police have arrested two persons for their alleged involvement in the case.

The two accused have been identified as Amit Sharma and Dinesh Agarwal.

Sources in the police said the duo has confessed that they abducted the victim from Jharsuguda and subsequently killed and burnt his body in Bargarh.

“As the body is in Bargarh, post mortem and inquest are being done there. It would be premature on my part to say how they killed the minor boy. However, the accused have confessed something,” said Smit Parmar, Jharsuguda SP.
