They took the help of a city-based trader to contact Chandrashekar and to kill him. In connection with this, four industrialists from Guj-arat have been detained.
Chandrashekar went missing in October and his wife lodged a missing complaint at the Kukatpally police station. Chandrashekar made 14 calls from his phone before he went missing.
