A businessman’s six-year-old twins in Madya Pradesh were killed by kidnappers despite receiving Rs 20 lakh as ransom. The twins were abducted on 12 February from Chitrakoot in Satna district of MP. The bodies of the twins were found on the banks of Yamuna in Marka police area in Madhya Pradesh Sunday morning.
Police day the kids- Shreyansh and Priyansh- were thrown alive into the river with their hands and legs tied.
According to news reports, the criminals had raised the ransom demand to Rs. 1 crore after getting Rs. 20 lakh on 19th February.
Brijesh Rawat, father of the victims, is an oil merchant in Ramghat at Chitrakoot Dham (Karvi). The twins were students of Sadhgurur Public School in Chitrakoot. On February 12 the two were returning home in a school bus at around 1 pm. Two bike-borne masked men waylaid the bus inside the school premises and kidnapped the kids on gun point. The whole incident was caught on CCTV camera.
The incident has sparked a violent protest in Chitrakoot with protesters ransacking a shopping mall and attacking the school where the twins studied. The police had to fire tear gas shells to disperse the mob. Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC have been clamped in Chitrakoot. All business establishments in the area have been shut down and the traffic movement has also been restricted.
Meanwhile, chief minister Kamal Nath talked to Brijesh Rawat over phone and gave his heartfelt condolences. The Special Task Force had arrested four people allegedly involved in the crime and they led the police to the site from where they had thrown the children.
