Body of 7-year-old boy found stuffed in suitcase, IAS aspirant held

New Delhi: The body of a minor boy was Tuesday found stuffed in a suitcase from an apartment in north west Delhi's Swaroop Nagar, following which the tenant was arrested for allegedly killing him.

Awadhesh Shakya, a 27-year-old IAS aspirant, was arrested Tuesday morning after the body of the seven-year-old boy, who had gone missing for over a month, was found at his house.

The boy was missing since January 6 and a police complaint was lodged.

During interrogation, the accused told the police that the boy's father was opposed to his fondness towards Shakya. The youth killed the boy and 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 the victim's father in the same area and was close to the boy.
