Abducted man found dead

According to police, a seven-member gang began pestering Govindaraj for payment of Rs 50,000 as protection money. As Govindaraj started to dither payment, the gang abducted him along with his friend Shivaraj from Majestic.

The latter was set free and asked to alert Govindaraj’s family for payment of money. The efforts of his uncle to rise money went in vain and ultimately he lodged a missing complaint on May 14. After investigation, police arrested Venugopal, Munna, Ramesh and two others.
