A six-year-old nephew of local Congress leader Vijendra Singh Chauhan from Mhow was allegedly abducted and killed by his distant cousins on Sunday evening.
The kidnappers reportedly demanded Rs 4 crore ransom from the father of deceased boy Jitendra Singh Chauhan.
Jitendra is younger brother of local Congress leader Vijendra Singh Chauhan.
With the help of CCTV footage Indore police identified Hritik Chauhan (20) one of the accused with whom the boy is spotted.
On interrogation Hritik revealed of carrying the act with his cousin Vikas Chauhan (23). The duo were arrested by the police where Vikas was arrested from a hotel in Omkareshwar.
Congress senior leader and ex-CM Kamal Nath tweets the tragic case of kidnapping and murder of Congress leader Vijender Singh Chauhan’s nephew Harsh Chauhan has come to the fore. May God give place to the departed soul in his holy feet and give strength to the family to bear this loss.
The brutal killing of an innocent child is a matter of great sorrow for the Congress family and a big question mark for the law and order situation in Madhya Pradesh. I urge the Chief Minister to provide immediate justice to the victim’s family, Nath said.
