BENGALURU: Vishal, a student at an evening college and an RTO agent, got the police to track call records of other people who knew the family. He pointed fingers at the family’s driver and also some youths in the neighbourhood saying that Sharath was seen talking to them sitting in an auto near the house that evening.

He managed to keep the police off his back for 1o days by giving them misleading information. On two occasions when he was summoned to the police station, he took Sharath’s father along. He went alone twice to record his statements. He always arrived there within no time, and thus police had initially ruled out his involvement in the crime. He gave the police a SIM card wich he regularly used and said they could check his call records. But he kept them in the dark about two other SIM cards which he used to communicate with his associates. Police finally tracked him as he was using his mother’s SIM card which she was unaware of.

Meanwhile, Vishal also spread rumors that Sharath was addicted to drugs and he was carrying cash with him when he left the house. He also got some of Sharath’s friends and relatives to believe that he might have gone somewhere and cooked up a kidnap story.
