BENGALURU: Ashoknagar police have solved the case of kidnap of a six-year-old boy within three hours of the complaint being filed with the arrest of two youths.

The arrested are Gagan (23), a relative of the boy, and his friend Clinton (22), both employees of a BPO. The boy’s father Anand works at the courier department of a private software company.

According to a senior police officer, the boy was playing near his house in Pillayar Koil Street on Wednesday evening when he went missing. When Anand began looking for him, he learnt that his son was last seen with Gagan. He went to the police with Gagan and filed a kidnapping case.

Police also found Gagan’s behaviour suspicious and took him into custody. During interrogation, he is said to have revealed that his friend kidnapped the boy and took him to the City Railway Station to board a train to Arasikere. Police rushed to the station and rescued the boy.

Police learnt that Clinton had a debt of Rs 1 lakh and the duo had hatched the plot to demand ransom from the boy’s father and share the money. 

“Gagan took the boy to Clinton’s house in K R Puram. The police made Gagan call Clinton to track his movements. They had tried to borrow money from their friends and colleagues, and after failing, Gagan came up with the kidnap idea and roped in  Clinton,” the police officer said.
