19-yr-old hotel management student held, 15-yr-old schoolboy detained; wanted to make quick money, say cops
A five-year-old boy — son of a scientist couple working at the DRDO labs in Pashan — was allegedly abducted and later found murdered on Sunday night. Police have arrested a 19-year-old hotel management student and detained a 15-year-old school boy who hatched the plan for what police described as "quick money".
Deceased Shubh Rawal's father Bhupender Rawal is a scientist at the DRDO's Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) while mother Sukeshini works at the High Energy Material Research Laboratory (HEMRL).
Chatushrungi police said Shubh was last seen playing at a Ganesh pandal near his house in Ramnagar ARDE quarters around 9 pm.
They have arrested Parmindar Singh (19), student of a private hotel management institute, and detained his friend who is a 15-year-old SSC student at an Army Public School. Police said their fathers are former defence personnel presently attached to the Defence Security Corps (DSC), which looks after the security of the these research institutes. Shubh studied in a nursery school in Panchawati.
Police said Sukeshini returned home around 8.30 pm after a puja at a nearby Ganesh pandal and realised that Shubh was not home.
Bhupender said: "Since he was seen playing at the pandal, we started a search for him and then registered a missing persons complaint with the police." S M Borse, another ARDE staffer whose son is Shubh's friend, said: "His mother (Sukeshini) went to many houses in the locality to search for Shubh."
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone III) Shahaji Umap said: "His parents and their neighbours started a search and our teams also joined them after the complaint. We got to know about the kidnapping when the 15-year-old boy told the search team that Parmindar could have done it. Actually, he knew that Parmindar had taken the boy uphill."
