New Delhi: Five men were nabbed on Wed­nes­day for al­legedly mur­der­ing a 13-yearold boy in cen­tral Delhi’s Mandir Marg.

Po­lice said that the boy, Vikas, was ab­ducted by six men in an au­torick­shaw on Satur­day, fol­low­ing which a case of kid­nap­ping was regis­tered based on his par­ents’ state­ment.

Af­ter a long search, five out of the six ac­cused were taken into cus­tody, un­rav­el­ling the mys­tery of his dis­ap­pear­ance. On Wed­nes­day, Vikas’ body was found near Mandir Marg.

The ac­cused men told po­lice that they beat the teen with sticks and rods, and left him in an un­con­scious state where he suc­cumbed to his in­juries. The mur­der was al­legedly plot­ted by one Yo­gesh alias Makdi, as revenge for be­ing thrashed by Vikas and his friends a few days prior to the mur­der.

Po­lice said that all the ac­cused live in nearby slums. The man­hunt to nab the sixth ac­cused is still on.
