Police said Abhishek (26), a resident of Hesaraghatta, Bharat (25) of Bagalagunte, Prakash KP (22) of JP Nagar, and Cheluvamurthy (22) of Byadarahalli, allegedly accepted a contract to kidnap a man named Shahid Sheikh, who lived with his second wife Rathna Kathum. 

On Sunday, Sheikh’s friend visited him at his house in Vishweshwaraiah Layout.  When they had gone to buy fish, in MEI Layout, around five people who came in a car kidnapped him. His friend rushed back to the house and informed Rathna, who lodged a complaint with the police.
