A 13-year-old kid who had been missing since last Monday from the Jatrabari neighborhood of Dhaka was discovered dead on Friday in Chattogram.

The dead was identified as Nurun Nabi, a Dhalpur resident of Jatrabari in Dhaka and the son of Golam Rasul.

Inspector of Panchlaish Police Station Aktaruzzaman said the kidnappers probably murdered the youngster after failing to get a ransom.

According to the victim's family, Nurun Nabi went missing on Monday and his father received a call from an unknown caller asking Tk 50,000 as a ransom to free his son.

Golam Rasul lodged a general diary with Jatrabari Police Station on Tuesday.

He also provided Tk 5,000 to the abductors through bKash.

Golam Rasul claimed that he provided all information to police but they did not take prompt action.

On Friday morning, locals spotted the body of Nurun Nabi at Hill View residential area in Chattogram and informed police.

Nurun Nabi’s brother identified the body on Friday night.

Police are trying to arrest the abductors, said Inspector Aktaruzzaman.

Mafizul Islam, officer-in-charge of Jatrabari Police Station, said police were investigating the incident after the general diary was filed and that the abductors could be the victim’s neighbours.

The Jatrabari OC also denied the allegation of negligence brought by the victim's father.
