Beijing, July 20 (IANS) A nine-year-old schoolboy was abducted, killed, chopped up and then his kidnappers used a meat grinder to mince his body, before throwing it in a river in China.

The three suspects are facing kidnapping and murder charges.

Schoolboy Zhang Shihao met Liu Zhiwei Nov 2, 2010, in Zhengzhou, the capital of central China’s Henan province.

Liu asked Zhang to help pick up a yo-yo for his niece and he then drove away with him, Shanghai Daily cited Henan Business News as reporting.

Liu then made a ransom call for 100,000 yuan to Zhang’s family.

Zhang’s parents informed the police and then went to a bank to pay the money into an account.

Two days later, Liu demanded 100,000 yuan more, and warned them not to report to police.

The police stopped them from sending the ransom money.

A probe has revealed that Liu and two accomplices had killed Zhang.
