The joint commissioner of commercial taxes was allegedly kidnapped from his residence in the city and tortured by his car driver late on Tuesday night.

The captive, however, escaped from the clutches of the captors and approached the police with the assistance of locals in Mahbubnagar district in the early hours of Wednesday.

According to the police, Radhakrishna is working as joint commissioner in the commercial taxes department at Nampally. He was kidnapped by his car driver Raju and his friends from his home and was taken to Mahbubnagar district in the captive’s vehicle. They demanded a ransom of Rs 20,000 for his release.

As the vehicle reached Tadipatri village in Mahbubnagar district around 3 am, Radhakrishna jumped off the running vehicle and, with the assistance of villagers,  approached the Gopalpet police station. He told the police that he had been kidnapped by his car driver and his friends, and  tortured in the moving car. He also said that Raju and his friends had forcibly taken Rs 3,500 in cash and two mobile phones from him and drove away in his Maruti Swift car.

Gopalpet police told Express that the victim brought the issue to their notice providing proper details of the incident but wanted to lodge a complaint with the Jubilee Hills police station in whose limits he was kidnapped.
