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.

The accused stabbed the boy to death after he lost conscious.
