CHENNAI: Two persons allegedly kidnapped an NRI who returned to India a few months ago and kept him in a house in Mannadi for three days. The NRI had failed to repay the loan he took. On Wednesday, police nabbed one Thameem Ansari, brother of the moneylender, and were looking for Basheer.

Police said, the victim Syed Abu Dahir (35), of Venkadaiyya Street, Muthialpet owned a mobile showroom in Parrys. He also lived in London for a few years for his business. On Wednesday, Syed told police that he had escaped from the abductors’ house in Mannadi where was kept for the last three days and wanted help.

The police on Wednesday evening nabbed Thameem and registered four cases against him and began hunting his associate, Basheer.

Ansari told police that in London, Syed had become a friend of his brother S Wasim, of Nethaji Nagar, Tondiarpet now living in the UK capital.

Syed borrowed Rs 10 lakh from Wasim a few years ago and returned Rs 5 lakh but did not repay the rest. He returned to Chennai a few months ago but did not return the remaining loan. Wasim then informed his brother to recover the loan.

“Ansari along with his friend Basheer hatched a plan to kidnap Syed. On March 10, while Syed was heading to his shop, the duo kidnapped him on a motorcycle and lodged him in a house where he was tortured,” police alleged.
