KALABURAGI: In a tussle between kidnappers and police, three police personnel and two kidnappers sustained injuries near Basnal village, Kalaburagi taluk on Monday.

Speaking with press persons on Monday, Northeast Range IGP Alok Kumar said that Kiran Kumar and Deepak had kidnapped one Srinath of Savtkhed village of Chittapur taluk on Saturday and demanded Rs 15 lakh as ransom from his family.

They chopped Srinath’s toes and threatened to kill him if his family tempted to inform the police.

After realising that they could not pay Rs 15 lakh, the kidnappers reduced their demand to Rs 4 lakh. The family, who were not in a position to that either, lodged a complaint at Madbool Police Station. The kidnappers, who were not aware of the complaint against them, again demanded the money and the kin agreed to give the money to kidnappers near Basnal village, as per the direction of police.

Srinath’s kin reached the spot along with circle inspector of Kalagi Police Station Kattimani, PSI Husain Basaha in mufti. However, the kidnappers sensed some trouble and threatened the family members at knife point to give away the money and leave.

Subsequently, the police tried to nab the kidnappers, who in turn tried to escape by attacking the police personnel. At this point, the police fired two rounds on the kidnappers and caught hold of them.

All the three police personnel have been admitted at Basaveshwara Hospital while the kidnappers were admitted at District Government Hospital. A case in this regard has been registered at Fartabad Police Station.
