Angry Inspired by TV, teen kills friend in 'wrestling style'!

AHMEDABAD: A 17-year-old boy duped and abducted his friend in Ahmedabad so that he could demand Rs 5 lakh ransom. In the end, he choked Lokesh Dadwani (17) to death by shoving his elbow in his throat in true WWE style.

The boy, who was arrested on Tuesday, told police that he and Lokesh had plotted the kidnapping to get the money from his father. "He is an avid fan of the wrestling shown on TV," said a police officer. Police, however, said Lokesh's family didn't get any ransom call.

Police said the boy convinced Lokesh that both of them could make quick money through this plot. On December 5, the two met near a fruit market in Naroda and went to a godown in the Indian Food Industry building at Sarangpur. The boy had access to this building as he used to work for a textile unit which had a godown on the third floor.

Lokesh panicked when his friend began tying him up inside a toilet. "Lokesh started struggling, finding the knots too tight and also noticing a change in his friend's behaviour," said an investigator. Lokesh was quickly overpowered and killed "in WWE style", the officer said, adding he had confessed to learning it from a TV show.

"The body lay there for five days until other employees opened the toilet and called in the police on Monday," the officer said.

The boy acted normally after the murder and even helped Lokesh's father lodge a missing complaint with the police. Later when a godown key was recovered from his shirt pocket by his mother, he was driven by guilt to tell her everything, police said.

The boy was arrested on Tuesday morning. "During primary investigation, the boy said he wanted to get Rs 5 lakh as ransom from the victim's father and also claimed that Lokesh initially supported the plan so that they could share the money. But we have yet to ascertain the truth in his story," said B V Kundaliya, inspector of Khadia police station.
