Four, including woman, held for abduction charges

Four persons, including a woman, who had staged an abduction drama over a financial matter, have been arrested by the police.

The suspect have been identified as Shabana, 28, Satish, 31, Ranjith, 37, and Mohan Kumar, 45, all residents of Rajarajeshwarinagar.

According to the KR Puram police, Shabana had connived with others to abduct Yuvaraj, an autorickshaw driver, as she had some financial dispute with him. Yuvaraj, a suspect in a theft case, met Shabana, accused of murdering her husband, at Parappana Agrahara. The duo got involved in financial transactions after they came out of jail, said the police.

Shabana invited Yuvaraj for a talk on April 27. She, joined by a few others, pretended to hire his autorickshaw from ITI Gate at Chikkadevasandra. Shabana and her accomplices  forced Yuvraj into Mohan’s house, where they thrashed him repeatedly for a day. They called up Yuvaraj’s wife Shobha the next day and demanded Rs 2.5 lash ransom to set him free. They brought it down to Rs 1.5 lakh after Shobha expressed her helplessness, said the police.

Meanwhile, Shobha lodged a complaint with the police, who started tracing the suspects based on mobile phone call details. Shabana reached Jaraganahalli and the police followed her. The police arrested the suspects once Shobha identified them, added the police.
