A young engineer, who was abducted three days ago, was found murdered in west Delhi early this morning, police said.

Three of his abductors have been arrested.

Johny Gupta (23) was abducted from Keshavpuram Industrial area on April three. He was found murdered in Nangloi in west Delhi.

"The family had claimed that they got a ransom call for Rs one crore," a senior police official said.

They could not afford to pay that much money, the police said.

Investigators claimed that the victim knew his abductors but were yet to confirm whether they were friends.

The victim's brother claimed, "the abductor called and asked for Rs one crore ransom. He said if you want him safe, don't inform police or media."

The brother alleged that police did not register a case at the first place. Police denied the allegations.
