Meanwhile, the kidnappers forced Dinesh to call his wife and bring the money to a location in Neelasandra. “My wife, along with my brother-in-law, reached the spot. When one of the accused approached my wife for the money, my brother-in-law recognised him and called out his name, ‘Sunil.’ Realising that his cover was blown, he fled from there. When my kidnappers received a call that one of the accused had been identified, they fled too. After they left, I managed to find my way back when my brother-in-law told me that Sunil was a resident of our area, and he had recently joined a gang of rowdies,” said Dinesh.
Soon after hearing of Dinesh’s kidnap, the locals informed him that Sunil’s gang was trying to raise money to get one of their aides out of jail on bail.
A senior officer said, “The accused are not rowdy sheeters of our police station and are currently absconding,” he said.
