"Four people have been arrested, further investigation is underway," K K Mishra, ASP, Siwan said.

According to police, the motive behind the kidnapping was extortion. However, the culprits murdered the victim in panic once the police started closing in on them.

"We have arrested four people involved in the kidnapping and also recovered the vehicle used by the culprits. The culprits are neighbours of the family with which the boy used to live with. They probably panicked after the police started looking out for them and killed the boy. At first sight, it looks like just these four are involved but more will be revealed after further investigation," said ASP Kantesh Kumar Mishra told ANI.

Police have increased security at the Sadar hospital premises where the body of the deceased is kept.
