Friend among four held for kidnapping, killing IT officer's son in Bengaluru

The body of Sharath N, the 19-year-old son of Niranjan Kumar, an income tax officer from Bengaluru, was discovered near a lake in Kengeri, on the outskirts on Bengaluru on Friday morning.

His parents and sister reportedly received a WhatsApp video message in which the abductors asked them to arrange Rs 50 lakh as ransom.

Four men have been arrested in connection with the crime; one of the them is Sharath's best friend - Vishal. Sharath, whose father Niranjan Kumar is a tax official in Bengaluru went missing when he took his new motorcycle to show it off to his friends. Sharath reportedly told his parents that the kidnappers looked like terrorists and could also harm his sister.

So far the police have arrested a total of 6 people in the case. They later joined Shantha, Vikky and had a beer before they made Sharath get into a auto that Vikky had borrowed from his friend.

Police said they believe the abductors killed the teenager because they feared being caught.

They then carried his body in the auto, tied a boulder to it and dumped it in Narasimhaiah lake at Ramohalli, said Additional Commissioner of Police (West) Malini Krishnamoorthy.

After Vishal realised that the family had approached the police, the gang allegedly strangled Sharath and dumped the body into a lake. Soon after, Vishal visited Sharath's house to console the family. They tied more stones to the body and put it back in the lake. When his decomposed body was exhumed, the family were inconsolable. They continued to visit the lake and saw that the body was floating again on September 19. The victim also asked his parents not to file a police complaint.

Police managed to identify and track down the accused with the help of analysis of mobile communications and the video message sent to Sharath's family, police said.
