Kidnap averted

Accused Lokesh Kumar, Kiran, Ashok, Punith Kumar and Raghu are close associates of a notorious rowdy-sheeter Ravi alias cycle Ravi, said the police.
Based on a tip off, the police rushed to a ground in Hanumanthnagar and arrested the accused.

They had hatched a conspiracy to rob and eliminate Sunil alias star Sunil, a close associate of Linga alias Katriguppe Linga who was about to pass through the area with huge money connected with a land dealing, added the police.

In May 2009, Lokesh, Ashok and others kidnapped a builder named Umapathi Naidu when he was returning after visiting Shani Mahatma temple in Subramanyapura. They demanded Rs 25 lakh ransom and settled down for Rs 10 lakh.

When Naidu denied to yield to their demand, the accused robbed his ATM card, withdrew Rs 10,000 and released him later.
