According to police, Vaishnavi (5) and Jitesh alias Appu (3), children of auto driver Suresh and Yashodha were playing in front of their house in B Channasandra, 3rd Cross, when they were kidnapped by Subbu alias Subramani (36) of Krishnagiri district in Tamil Nadu and his accomplice Venkatesh.

The men took the children to a mango grove in Ramagondanahalli, where they stayed in a relative’s house.

The duo planned to take the children to Tamil Nadu and wanted to make the ransom call to Suresh from there.

However, the Ramamurthynagar police swung into action after Yashodha lodged a complaint. The two men were found drunk when the police made a surprise raid and rescued the children.
