Shivamogga: An incident of kidnapping, similar to those depicted in movies, was foiled in Achubaju near Yediyur of the Thirthahalli taluk on Friday, October 4, at 12 PM.
A young lady and her mother were travelling in a Maruti Suzuki Ritz car to the Renukamba temple in the Mastikatte-Yediyur village. While on their way, five young men brandished their weapons, stopped the car and tried to kidnap the young girl. However, the assailants saw policemen approaching the vehicle and fled the scene.
The victim of the failed kidnapping attempt has been identified as the daughter of Sridhar, a resident of Yediyur. Sridhar is reportedly the younger brother of Ravindra, a stone miner.
Sources said that the incident seems to have taken place due to a love-affair.
However, when she was interrogated by police officials, the young girl reportedly identified one of the assailants as Kuruvalli Naga.
