Ex-cricketer 'stumped' by cops

A small injury while playing cricket forced Kishore from RPC Layout in Bangalore to bid goodbye to his bright career as a wicket keeper-cum-batsman. Although he tried to eke out a decent living working with the few mobile phones companies, his passion for fast cars, boozing and girl friends forced him to walk into the filthy world of crime.

He had represented a cricket club in Bangalore in Under 19 ‘International Tour Exposure’ tournament held in Malaysia. He was also adjudged ‘Man of the series’ for his prowess. He had also toured Sri Lanka and Sinapore. However, his cricketing career came to an abrupt end when he sustained injuries on his eye at a practice session. Strangely, Kishore decided to walk out of cricket and also discontinue his studies in Diploma in Animation before taking a detour.

Kishore’s forte was fast driving. He would drive at the minimum speed of 140 kms/ hr and would hand over the steering to his friend midway, before getting into the back seat with finesse through the window.  Though married, he was in love with another girl.  Kishore had purchased a car of a reputed company with the fast bucks he had earned and was aspiring to buy a weapon to continue his nefarious activities, Police Commissioner Sunil Agarwal fretted.

The Commissioner said that as Kishore had earned success in the initial stages, kidnapping for ransom was like walking away with the cake. Now, he is one among the six-member gang of inter-state dacoits in the police net.The gang was also involved in the kidnapping of Kodagu-based contractor Mohan Kumar and his son Tushar.
