Patna: Police in Patna on Friday recovered the body of 14-year old Raunak Kumar who was reported abducted on Thursday morning after he failed to reach his school.

Raunak's father Sudhir Kumar who is a property dealer told the police that he informed the Agam Kuan police about this missing son on Thursday but the police initially did not file a report. Then the kidnappers called him on his mobile and demanded a ransom of Rs. 25 lakh.

"My son was going to school with his sister but then he realized he had left something at home so he turned around to come home and that's when motorcycle-borne criminals picked him up and disappeared. To save the life of my son, I even agreed to pay Rs. 20 lakh to his abductors but they never got back to me. I tried to file an FIR with the police but they would not take it seriously. Had the police reacted promptly, perhaps my son would be alive right now," a grieving father told the reporters.

Authorities carried out raids on late Thursday night and took three persons in custody. Based on their information, police search Shubham Shringar and found the body of the young boy hidden in a back room.

If police are to be believed, the criminals killed the boy shortly after his abduction so he could not identify them if released.

Police have arrested the victim's neighbor and the owner of the Shubham Shringar Vicky Paswan, 19, and two others in the case.

Admitting his crime, Vicky told the police he owed Rs. 3 lakh to some people and they were now demanding the money that led to his plan to kidnap his neighbor's son for ransom money.
