CHENNAI: A 28-year-old man was arrested along with two of his aides on Monday for allegedly kidnapping a 23-year-old woman, a hotel management student, with the intention of marrying her. The main accused, S Ahmed Basheer of Vanniyar street in Porur, works as an interior decorator and is already married twice, police said.

On February 12, the woman, Rani (name changed) had gone to T Nagar with her mother Janaki after which she had gone missing. “Initially, only a woman missing complaint was lodged as it was assumed that the woman got lost in the crowd,” a police officer said. However, subsequent investigations revealed that the accused had attempted to lure the girl and coerce her into marriage, police added.

Basheer sought the help of two of his friends, Ramkumar (23) and Mani (24) and allegedly kidnapped her in a car. A special team traced them to a hideout in the city and rescued her on Sunday. Basheer and associates were booked under many sections including 365 of IPC (kidnap) and 343 of IPC (wrongful confinement) and remanded in judicial custody.

In another incident, a 75-year old man committed suicide in his house at East Tamabaram on Sunday.

Police said Dhanapal, a farmer, lived at  Anantha- puram along with his son Gokul (32), a daily labourer. On Sunday, Dhanapal had a fight with his son and attacked him with a wooden stick. Later, Dhanapal committed suicide.
