Kanpur News: According to authorities, a 17-year-old boy in Kanpur was murdered by his teacher’s lover, who also sent a ransom note to the boy’s family to make it appear as though the boy had been kidnapped. According to the police, the boy, a class 10 student, was taken to a store room by Prabhat Shukla, who also happens to be Rachita’s tuition teacher.

After roughly twenty minutes, Prabhat emerges, but the youngster does not. Police say that no one else appears to have entered the room after that, based on a preliminary investigation.
