Patna, Aug 26 (IANS) A day after a 15-year-old boy was abducted for ransom, his body was found near Patna Friday, police said. The incident triggered protests as people demanded action against police for inaction.
Aditya Kumar, a Class 9 student of Patna-based Gayan Nietan School, was kidnapped Thursday when he was on his way to a coaching institute.
The boy's father Sailesh Kumar, a district agriculture officer, received a call from the kidnappers asking for Rs.75 lakh for his release.
