Chander, Tejinder planned kidnapping of Yug


The CID team investigating the gruesome murder of four-year-old Yug today conducted spot inspections to verify the information extracted from the accused during custodial interrogation. The team examined all the places where the child was held captive during one week after his kidnapping from the busy Ram Bazar area on June 14, 2014.

The investigating team visited the spot from where Yug was lured and kidnapped, the house where he was held captive, the place where his clothes were burnt, the vehicle used for transportation and the water tank where the body was dumped.

Police investigations revealed that the plot to abduct Yug for ransom and his murder in cold blood was allegedly masterminded by Chander and Tejinder, while 22-year-old Vikrant was used by them and his presence was noted everywhere.

It was a rainy day. The kid was lured by the kidnappers, who were known to him. His mouth was shut with tape. He was put in a box and transported in a vehicle to the rented house of Chander Sharma at Ram Chandra Chowk near Raj Bhawan.

Sources revealed that when the abductors realised that their demand for ransom would not be accepted they thought of releasing the child but did not do so as they were afraid that the child, who knew them well, could expose them. This will land them in deep trouble. To avoid any risk, the abductors decided to eliminate him.
The abductors were allegedly under the influence of drugs and alcohol when they subjected the innocent child to inhuman torture.

The distraught family of Yug is inconsolable and crying for justice. The father is a heart patient, mother continues to take his name with the hope that the child would respond while the grandmother is dumbfound still keeping his clothes close to her heart.

The accused were taken to various spots under heavy police protection as it was feared that enraged people might attack them. The three accused booked under sections 302, 201, 342, 364 A and 120 B of IPC were remanded to five days of police custody by the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate on August 23. Tejinder Singh and Vikrant Bakshi are unmarried while Chander Sharma got married six months ago.
