Jadcherla: Two teenage boys who were kidnapped years ago finally made their way home recently. According to police, Murali (14) and Abhi (12), children of Venkatesh and Kavitha, a couple from Indiranagar Colony in Jadcherla, had a harrowing time during their confinement.
Kavitha handed over Murali to strangers seven years ago asking them to provide him employment. However, the strangers took him to Karnataka where they made him to beg and steal. He was harassed, threatened and manhandled.
His whereabouts were kept clandestine.
Meanwhile, Murali’s younger brother, Abhi was kidnapped by the handlers of Murali six years ago. Abhi, too, received the same treatment as his brother. But, he was made to do such things in Hyderabad. The parents of these boys were said to have died six years ago.
Recently, Murali escaped from the clutches of the kidnappers and reached his aunt Kalamma’s home. On learning the return of his elder brother, Abhi, too, managed to reach the house of the aunt.
The kidnappers contacted Kalamma and offered her Rs 40,000 for handing over the boys. She gave the kidnappers her address and at the same time lodged a complaint with the police.
The police took Sarana Basavappa, one of the three kidnappers, into custody while two others fled. In yet another incident, Bhima, (7), son of Ushanamma and Durgaiah, disappeared from the same place some months ago. Though the parents lodged a complaint, the police did not respond. It is believed that the boy was also kidnapped.
