Shyamal went missing a few days after that call. His friends lodged a complaint with Medical College Police as they did not see him for two days. Four days later, abductors called Shyamal's father Vasudev Mandal and demanded Rs 20 lakhs for his son's release. When the father didn't agree, the kidnappers asked for Rs 10 lakhs. However, the father informed the police and Shyamal's body was found in a sack near Thiruvalla bypass on October 23, 2005.
