BENGALURU: The High Court on Monday directed the city police to submit the status of investigation on a complaint of kidnap for ransom against director of Kannada movie Eradu Kanasu.

Adjourning the bail plea of the five accused to July 14, Justice Rathnakala asked the police to submit the status report.

Paramesh, owner of Akshaya Advertisement Agency, was kidnapped in May. Paramesh’s father had filed a case with the Magadi Road police against five accused including Madan, director of Eradu Kanasu on the charges of kidnap and demanding ransom. The other four accused are - assistant director Chalapathy, Praveen Kumar, Murthy and Mohan. All five had approached the High Court for bail after their bail pleas were rejected by a trial court recently.

Three months ago, Madan, a resident of  Basaveshwaranagar had hired Paramesh (29) to promote his film. He had paid Paramesh Rs13.6 lakh but later accused him of not promoting the film well. Paramesh in turn abused him. Upset over this, Madan, Chalapathi, one of his friends and an assistant director planned to abduct Paramesh. After kidnapping, they called Paramesh’s father and father-in-law and demanded Rs 8 lakh for his safe return. Paramesh’s father Gurusiddappa filed a complaint with Magadi Road police.

A special team of Magadi and Kamakshipalya police surrounded the farmhouse near Devanahalli where Paramesh was kept captive and nabbed Madan. Madan then revealed the names of his accomplices.
