Kidnapped Keralite teenager found dead TV reports

Dead body of kidnapped Income Tax official's 19-year-old son was recovered from a lake in Bengaluru. Earlier in the week, the victim, Sharath, was seen in a video asking his parents to pay Rs. 50 lakh as ransom to his kidnappers for his safe release. Police had initially said Sharath could have gone on a Ladakh trip on his new motorcycle, but it turned out that his childhood friend and accomplices had kidnapped him for ransom and later murdered him after they realised that Sharath's parents have approached the police. Police said Vishal and his friends, Shantha Kumar, Vinay and Karan gathered near the RTO on September 10. When his decomposed body was exhumed, the family were inconsolable.

The kidnappers killed Sharath after finding out that his parents filed a police complaint. Vishal told Sharath to meet near Shirke Apartment at Kengeri Satellite Town, and then later they rode their bikes till Ullal RTO office.

Vishal said during the confession that when he and his accomplices learnt of the police's involvement, they kept Sharath in a auto and moved around the city, the police said.

The police found his body near Ramohalli lake on the outskirts of the city on Friday. Soon after, Vishal visited Sharath's house to console the family. The victim also asked his parents not to file a police complaint. But two days later they saw the body floating.

N Korean missiles passing over Japan must not become routine
Nikki Haley told CBS News the United States had lots of military options on North Korea that stop short of destroying the country. Instead, he said, the worldwide community should strictly implement the sanctions imposed on North Korea by the U.N.

Sharath was then bundled into the auto of Prasad, who was drafted into the scheme, police said. "They chose to take the body and bury it in a stone quarry nearby", Rathore said.

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.

Vishal, who knew Sharath well, used his love for bikes, especially imported superbikes, to lure him into a trap, police said.
