Mumbai: A 10-year-old boy was allegedly killed at Sakinaka in suburban Andheri by a teenager for refusing to have sex with him, police said Sunday. The accused stuffed the body in a suitcase and dumped it in a nullah to destroy evidence, they said, adding that the body has been recovered. The incident took place Friday in Lalbahadur Shastri Nagar.
However, it came to light after the boy’s father had filed a missing person complaint with the local police, an official said. The complainant told police that he had received a call from an unidentified person claiming that he had kidnapped his son and demanded Rs 5 lakh as ransom for his release, he said.
The complainant said he last saw his son Friday evening with his teenager friend. Police then detained the juvenile for questioning. The whole case was untangled after the police found that the SIM card which was used to make the extortion call was registered in the name of one Fakaruddin Chowdhary, said Kishore Sawant, senior inspector, Sakinaka police station.
Chowdhary told police that his 15-year-old son was using the SIM card, he said. On questioning, the 15-year-old revealed that he made the ransom call to the scrap dealer on the insistence of his friend, the main accused in the case, who has been detained by the police.
