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.
Four men have been arrested in connection with the crime; one of the them is Sharath's best friend - Vishal. Sharath was killed after kidnappers came to know that his father filed a complaint with the police and then dumped his body near Rachenahalli lake. Vishal told Sharath to meet near Shirke Apartment at Kengeri Satellite Town, and then later they rode their bikes till Ullal RTO office. However, as the body started floating, the kidnappers tried to sink it by attaching stones to it before they buried it near the lake in a jute bag. They later joined Shantha, Vikky and had a beer before they made Sharath get into a auto that Vikky had borrowed from his friend. But it floated to the surface in a day or two, following which the kidnappers dug a pit near the lake and buried the body in it. "They made a decision to take the body and bury it in a stone quarry nearby", Rathore said. When his decomposed body was exhumed, the family were inconsolable. Sharath is believed to have been strangulated a couple of days after he was kidnapped, said police.
They tracked the mobile transmission tower locations from where the WhatsApp messages were generated, eventually stumbling upon the mobile number that led them to Vishal.
Vishal and his accomplices had hatched a plot on September 10 to kidnap Sharath and demand a ransom of Rs 50 lakh to make "quick money and settle in life", police said. The victim also asked his parents not to file a police complaint.
"There was minimal time between the kidnap and the murder, and it is unfortunate that the police could not do anything about it", said T. Suneel Kumar, Police Commissioner.
