Trio held for kidnapping 2 labourers from Assam | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Three men, including the president of a pro-Karnataka organisation, were arrested for allegedly kidnapping two dailywage labourers from Assam on Tuesday.
The accused are Babu Reddy, 34, of Srinivasapura and state president of Kannada Janabhivruddhi Rakshana Vedike, and his associates Nagesh C, 28, and Lakshmipathi, 37, from Mulabagal. Police rescued Dipen Uranga, 27, and Bikash Barua, 18, residents of Pillagumpa village, near Hoskote.
Dipesh and Bikash were standing near a shop in Pillagunpa village to take photocopies of their documents to apply for jobs when the trio approached them. They offered them jobs with a monthly salary of Rs 18,000. The labourers believed them and got into the car. The trio threatened them with a knife and demanded Rs 50,000 for their release. They asked Bikash to call his mother, Momita Barua, to arrange for money.
Momita approached Sulibele police as she did not have cash. Police asked her to continue talking to her son whenever she got calls from the abductors and based on the call records, a police team headed by circle inspector Rangaswamy traced the suspects to Battarahalli forest area on Betamangala Road and rescued their captives by late night.
Police said the trio had no criminal antecedents.
