  • Bengaluru Student Found Dead In Lake After Whats App Videos To Family

Soon after Sharath's kidnapping, a WhatsApp video message was sent to his parents, in which the boy was seen asking his parents to pay a ransom of ₹50 lakh to his abductors, according to the TOI report. ANI reported that six people have been arrested in connection with the death.

A Keralite Income Tax officer's son, Sharath who was allegedly abducted from the city, was found dead on Friday, TV reports said.

Police said the body has been exhumed and further investigations are on.

"Sharath is believed to have been strangled in the auto around midnight". They first disposed of the body in the Narasimaiah lake, but it resurfaced on the third day, forcing them to fish out the bloated body and drive around the city, until they chose to bury it at Kurubarapalya Bande from where it was exhumed on Friday morning. The kidnappers killed Sharath after they found out that his father had 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.

According to The News Minute, a police source claimed that the body was first thrown into the lake with stones tied around it so that it would drown. "They chose to take the body and bury it in a stone quarry nearby", Rathore said.

"The decomposed body has been handed over to the family after autopsy", said Prasad. They then fished it out and buried it near the lake.

His idea was to ensure that the family did not file a police complaint, get the ransom amount, and distribute it among themselves.

The police have recovered Sharath's motorcycle from the house of one of the kidnappers and two cars used for kidnapping and shifting the body.

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.
