Four people have been arrested for the murder of a class XI student of Delhi’s Kumaramangalam School.
The student, Ribbu Chawla, was killed after he was kidnapped on Monday.
Ribbu’s parents had received a ransom call demanding Rs 60 lakh to be paid in three installments. They had paid the kidnappers Rs 20 lakh.
Ribbu’s body was found in a jungle near Vasant Kunj in south Delhi on Wednesday.
The child was identified by his school uniform, police had said on Wednesday.
Ribu, whose father Sanjay Chawla runs a software business, was kidnapped by four unidentified men in a car at around 3:15 pm on Tuesday from Vikaspuri, a police official said.
“Ribu and his friend Shwetank were returning home in a two-wheeler when the men in the car hit their vehicle. There was a heated argument between Ribu and his kidnappers for a few minutes after which he was pushed into their car,” he said.
Investigators suspect that those involved might be known to the family and due to the fear of being identified, they killed Ribu, the official said. Police is also questioning former and current employees of the Chawlas as well as domestic helps in the nearby areas.
