Mumbai: A shocking incidence of abduction was reported to Amberpet Police Station on Monday late night. The abduction took place at a street of Amberpet area of Hyderabad where two men were seen in a CCTV footage dragging a woman mercilessly followed by 2 bikers who were also allegedly involved in the abduction. You will be shocked to know the reason for this ruthless abduction.
Essentially, K Srinivas and his wife had reportedly, borrowed INR 4 Lac from a money lender, M Srinivas, 4 years ago. K Srinivas was able to repay only INR 1 Lac due to financial difficulties and was not able to pay M Srinivas the remaining funds. M Srinivas, usually came alone to recover his funds from K Srinivas. However after several failed attempts, this time around M Srinivas came with some of his friends viz; Sai Ram, Raju, Venkat, Swaroop and his own minor son who, after being denied any repayment, abducted K Srinivas’ wife till K Srinivas repays the remaining funds to M Srinivas.
In a talk with TNM, Inspector Anand Kumar said, “M Srinivas used to visit the victim’s house frequently. However on Monday, he visited the victim’s house along with the other accused. When he didn’t get his money back, he said that the victim will remain in his custody till her husband pays him the money back”
Amberpet Police have arrested the accused M Srinivas, Raju and Sai Ram however the other three are still absconding. They have been booked under sections 506 (Punishment for Criminal Intimidation), 363 (Punishment for Kidnapping), 354 (Assault or Criminal Force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) of IPC.
Although K Srinivas’ wife has been rescued, the main question that we must ask is why people walking on the same street didn’t intervene when the victim was asking for help? Why people have become so insensitive towards such incidences? If not intervention, why was police not called by anyone there? These are some serious questions that must be asked by us. This is the high time we stand against such criminal activities.
