After killing the boy, the accused called his family members and sought a ransom of Rs 1 lakh, threatening them to kill the boy if the money was not paid.
A court in Madhya Pradesh awarded death sentence to a 20-year-old man on Monday for sodomising and killing a 13-year-old boy. Datia’s Special Judge Hitendra Dwivedi awarded the punishment to Nand Kishore while the case of a 15-year-old co-accused was transferred to a juvenile court, public prosecutor Pushpendra Kumar Garg said. The prosecutor told the court that Kishore along with the minor co-accused lured the victim, a resident of Bijasen Muhalla area in Datia, on March 2 this year on the pretext of buying him colours for the Holi festival. They took the victim to a deserted place and then sodomised him. Later, the accused killed the victim and disposed of the body in a canal near Deluva area on the city outskirts, the prosecution said.
