Mum­bai: A 10-year-old Powai boy was kid­napped and bru­tally killed by a dis­tant rel­a­tive who had picked him up from his house on Sun­day af­ter­noon say­ing they would go out to play. The ac­cused, Amar Singh, has been ar­rested along with an ac­com­plice.

Singh said he had kid­napped Ritesh, a Std 3 stu­dent, with the in­ten­tion of de­mand­ing a ran­som of Rs 2.5 lakh from his elec­tri­cian fa­ther Babloo. But he is said to have de­vel­oped cold feet af­ter a wor­ried Babloo called him up to in­quire about the boy. Minutes af­ter Babloo’s call, Singh, who had taken Ritesh to Bhayan­der, smashed the boy’s face with a boulder at a friend’s shop.

Singh and his friend later joined the boy’s fam­ily in hunt­ing for him.
