The two accused have been identified as Lala Shivaji Suryavanshi (38), a resident of Indira vsahat in Aundh and a native of Nandgaon in Usmanabad, and Sunita Lakshman Binavat (30), also a resident of Aundh and native of Karnataka.
The child was identified as Avinash Adey (3.5), a resident of Shalimar society in Kondhwa. After he went missing, the father of the child, Govind Pandurang Adey, lodged a missing complaint at Kondhwa police station.
