A body of a one-and - half-year old boy who was allegedly kidnapped around two months back was recovered Hari Nagar in West Delhi.

The police said that the father of the boy Ram Phal who is a daily wage labour filed a case of kidnapping with police.

The father in his complaint had said that his son Shyam Kumar was lying on a blanket at the construction site he was working in Hari Nagar on October 22, said police officers.

“When Ram Pal was busy working at the site, a woman who apparently came with another child came and took the victim,” said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity, as he is not authorized to speak to the media.

On Thursday the body of the victim was found in a park behind Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital.

The police said that the body was found with strangulation marks.

The body has been sent for post-mortem and murder charges have been added to the case of kidnapping.

The police are on the lookout of the woman who apparently took the victim.
