One of the accused told media persons that they killed Satyam as he used to tease and harass his girlfriend and other girls of the area.

Satyam's body was found in a bush behind the boundary wall of RPS College under Rupaspur police station area of the capital city, Kumar said.

Son of a homeopathy doctor of Aparna Bank Colony, Danapur, Satyam had gone for coaching classes on 27 September but did not return home and a police complaint was lodged. His parents received a phone call the following day from the kidnappers who demanded Rs 50 lakh as ransom, the SP said adding that the boy was already killed by then.

Police launched raids in the area after tracing the phone calls and arrested three youths from a village Rupaspur police station area. The abductors, who were Satyam's friends, took him to the bushes behind the college boundary wall and gave him some intoxicants, the SP said. The accused stabbed the boy to death after he lost conscious.

Police have also recovered two knives suspected to have been used in the killing from the spot of murder, he said.
