Dream of becoming IAS cost dear to the two youths from Bhind district. They kidnapped a minor boy for ransom with which they planned to join a coaching class in Delhi for the preparation of their dream job, but they killed the boy and landed in police net.

They were inspired by a TV serial- crime patrol.

Prashant Jatav, 21 and Ravi Sharma, 21, both residents of village Akoda under Umari police station of the district, are BA final year students in MLB College in Gwalior.

The two dreamt of becoming IAS and planned to join a coaching centre in Delhi. As their families are not financially sound, they decided to generate money themselves.

Taking a leaf out from a crime docudrama-Crime Patrol- they kidnaped Prashant Jatav's 11-year-old cousin Kartik Jatav from home on July 19.

They later sent a ransom SMS to Prashant's uncle Bhagwan Jatav and demanded Rs 5 lakh as ransom money. They also threatened Bhagwan with dire consequences, if he would approach to police.

However, Bhagwan approached Umari police station and lodged a complaint.

Superintendent of police (SP), Bhind, Navneet Bhasin said that when the two accused came to know about police complaint, they strangulated the boy and dumped the body into a well situated about two kilometers away from village.

"Prashant was detained on basis of suspicion on July 20. When he was grilled, he confessed to have kidnapped and killed the boy. Today, his accomplice Ravi Sharma, who was on run, was arrested from the village and they revealed entire story behind the crime" Bhasin told HT.

Following the statement of Prashant, police fished out the body from the well.

"They had sought financial support from their respective families, but they denied the same. This annoyed the two so much that they decided to generate money themselves and become IAS to prove that they could do it without their families' supports," said a senior police official, who interrogated the two accused. They were inspired by a TV serial based on crime stories, the officer said.
