Hyderabad: A class 10 boy from Hyderabad has been taken into custody for kidnapping a seven-year-old boy and later demanding a ransom of Rs 3 lakh from the victim’s parents.

The victim lives in TSR Nagar of Meerpet with his parents and studies in a private school. He was found missing at around 3 pm on Sunday from his residential colony where he was last seen playing. After about half an hour, his father Raja, a software employee, received a phone call that said, “Your son has been kidnapped and you have to pay Rs 3 lakh if you want him to be handed over safely.”

He has been taken into custody. The police believe the boy has done this with the intention of making easy money.
