Noida: An engineering student was abducted and killed allegedly by his elder brother`s three "friends" who had demanded Rs one crore ransom from his family.

The body of Rohit Singh, a B-Tech student of Amity University who had gone missing on March 20, was found in Aligarh yesterday and police today arrested Vivek, Saurabh and Vishal in this connection.

A missing person report was lodged at Sector 39 police station after Rohit, who hails from Aligarh could not be traced. However, his family members received a ransom call from kidnappers who demanded Rs one crore for his release.

The three accused, who were friendly with Rohit and his elder brother, allegedly took him to Panipat in Haryana. However, when they found out that the police was trailing them, they killed Rohit and dumped his body in Aligarh on the night of March 22-23.

Through electronic surveillance, police traced the three kidnappers, who also hail from Aligarh, and arrested them.

Vivek, Saurabh and Vishal have confessed to the crime,
