Police have arrested the two accused and booked them for kidnapping and murder. The duo had a dispute with their relative, who lived next door, over a property and this often led to heated quarrels between the two families.
Assistant commissioner of police Abhinay Vishwakarma told Free Press that Javed Khan, a resident of Zada colony under Jahangirabad police station lodged a complaint saying that his six-year-old son Fardeen was missing from home since 2 pm.

While tracking the taxi, police found that the man went to his sister Samreen’s house situated in Kalyanpur under Chhola police station.
