Two children, who went missing three days ago, were found dead in a jungle here today.
The children, aged five and seven, went missing three days ago from Mandawli, police said.
Their bodies were recovered from a jungle near Tilak Marg and Pragati Maidan.
Police said they were awaiting the post-mortem report to ascertain the cause of the death.
The children were kidnapped from Mother's Convent School in Mandawli on February
26 by some men who posed as those who knew the kids, police said.
The family received a ransom call for Rs 30 lakh. Twice the spot for
delivering money was finalised but the kidnappers did not turn up.
"There were no ransom calls from February 28 and the bodies were
discovered this morning," police said.
Enraged over the incident, locals staged protest outside the Mandawli
