Police said the boy went willingly with Nagaraj as he was an acquaintance.Special Arrangement
Killer was in a relationship with victim’s mother; body found in an apartment complex in Selaiyur
A nine-year-old boy was kidnapped and brutally murdered, reportedly by his mother’s lover, after her husband demanded that they end their relationship. The accused, E. Nagaraj, 27, has been arrested.
Rithesh Sai, 9, was the son of Manjula, 39, an assistant section officer in Tangedco and Karthikeyan, 37, an interior decorator, who lived on Ezhumalai Street, Bharathi Nagar, Nesapakkam. Following a complaint from Mr. Karthikeyan that his son, who had gone for a tuition class, was missing, the MGR Nagar police began an investigation on Wednesday night. They discovered the body in an apartment complex on IAF Road in East Tambaram on Thursday morning
According to the police, Manjula got a job in Tangedco on compassionate grounds after her first husband died a few years ago. Later, she married Mr. Karthikeyan. He was involved in the construction industry and became acquainted with Nagaraj a year-and-a-half ago. Nagaraj, who lived on the same street, often took Rithesh to Hindi tuition classes.
Accused was warned
A senior police officer said, “Nagaraj had an affair with Manjula. Karthikeyan complained about the affair to the police, besides abusing Nagaraj and warning him to stay away from his wife. Infuriated over this, Nagaraj kidnapped the child and murdered him in Selaiyur.”
The police officer said Nagaraj picked up the child from the tuition centre around 7 p.m on his bike. Since the boy knew Nagaraj, he went with him willingly. Nagaraj bought the child chocolates and ice cream and took him to an apartment that was under construction near Selaiyur. First, he tried to strangle Rithesh, but when that did not work, he drove the broken edge of a bottle into his neck and then, hit him with an iron rod.
He fled the scene but was caught at the Ramavaram bus stand on Thursday morning.
The body was sent to the Government Royapettah Hospital for post-mortem. Nagaraj was arrested and remanded to judicial custody after being booked under Sections 364 (kidnapping in order to murder) and 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code. Assistant Commissioner of Police Vincent Jayaraj said they were probing the role of Ms. Manjula. “If prima facie evidence is found indicating her involvement, we will arrest her,” he added.
