Nayati was abducted at 7.35am on April 27 while walking to his Mont Kiara International school.
Police sources said after several attempts at negotiating for the release, the boy has finally been released.
The sources said the kidnappers contacted the family shortly after he was grabbed by two men in a black Gen-2 car and later demanded for a ransom for his safe release.
They said after several attempts at negotiations, the kidnappers finally agreed on a substantial ransom amount which was paid to the kidnappers Thursday morning.
City police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohmad Salleh said the child was released safely and unharmed at a rest and recreation stop along the North South Expressway near Sungai Buloh at around 7.55am Thursday.
He added that police are still investigating the kidnapping and urged the public with information on the case to call 03-2115 9999.
