Police on Sunday claimed to have solved the sensational kidnap and murder of a 15-year-old son of city businessman earlier this week with the arrest of three youths who committed the crime after being inspired by a movie.

The accused were identified as Sheshu Kumar alias Sairam (20), the prime accused who was known to the boy, Pondara Ravi (21) and Namburi Mohan (23), police said.

Abhay Modhani, a Class 10 student whose father is an industrialist, went missing on March 16 after he had gone to bring snacks from an eatery at Ghode ki Kabar area under Shahinayatgunj police station limits, a police release said.

His body was later found in a carton near a hotel at Secunderabad Railway Station. The teenager’s two-wheeler was also recovered from there.

“After searching in the neighborhood, the father lodged a complaint at Shahinayathgunj Police Station. The same day around 10 pm, the father received a call on his sister-in-law’s mobile phone from kidnappers who demanded a ransom of Rs 10 crore to release the boy,” the release said.
