The boy was missing since January 6 and a complaint was lodged in this regard, the police said.

During interrogation, the accused told the police that the boy's father was opposed to his fondness towards Shakya for which he killed the minor. Shakya wanted to dispose off the body and demand ransom from the boy's father, the police officer said.

The accused, however, was forced to keep the body at his place due to intensified police patrol in the area.

According to a police officer, the accused was once a tenant of victim's father in the same area and was close to the boy.
