Mangalore: Police arrest 8 for kidnap, blackmail of college students

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore (NM)

Mangalore, Dec 21: Mangalore city police on Saturday December 21 arrested eight persons in connection to the kidnapping and blackmail of two students of a private college at Deralakatte. The gang had forced the boy and the girl to engage in a sexual act and videographed them for blackmail.

Addressing a press meet here on Saturday at his office, police commissioner R Hitendra said that the eight were arrested at Katipalla circle in a house. They were produced in court on Saturday evening and remanded in police custody for three days.

Though the commissioner did not disclose the names of the accused, informed police sources told daijiworld that the eight are Shamsuddin (23) of Suratkal, Shameer (21) of Deralakatte, Iqbal (23) of Deralakatte, Rauf (22) of Deralakatte, Nawaz (28) of Mudipu, Nisar (18) of Manjanady, Harshad (28) of Deralakatte, and Sharfan Hussain (21) of Deralakatte. Sources said that three of them are rowdy-sheeters and have cases against them in Mulky police station.

Explaining the chain of events, Hitendra said that on December 18 at around 11 pm, the two students, male and female, were sitting in their car outside Meeting Point bar and restaurant. The gang came to their car, blindfolded them and one of the eight drove the car to a house in an isolated spot. The students were forced to perform sex, and when they refused, the gang brandished weapons and threatened to kill them and even threatened to rape the girl. Frightened, the students did as they were told, and their obscene shots were captured in the couple's mobile phones by the gang.

The gang then demanded Rs 25 lac from them, and threatened to upload the videos on the internet, the social media, and give copies to their parents and to their college principal if they were not paid the amount. Under pressure, the students agreed to pay them Rs 3 lac, for which the gang agreed.

The students were then taken to another isolated house. On December 20, a few of the 8 accused accompanied the girl to Thokkottu, while the boy remained hostage with the rest. While leaving the girl to bring the money, they warned her not to reveal the incident to anyone and not to approach the police, if she wanted to see her male friend alive. The girl, however, took courage and with the help of an advocate lodged a complaint with Konaje police.

The police swung into action and within a day caught hold of the accused. The police also seized a car, mobile phones, the video clip and weapons from the accused.

Konaje police booked the accused under sections 363, 384, 395, 354, 354 (c), 506, 364 (a), and 307 of IPC.

DCP (law and order) Dr K V Jagadish who is investigating the case and DCP (crime) Dharmaiah were present. Further investigations are on.

ACP south Pavan Nejjoor, inspector Dharmendra, PSI Sudhakar, PSI Ramesh Hanapur, PSI Sathish, PSI, Shyamsunder, SI Sundar Acharya, and other police personnel were part of the operation.

This is disgusting. After all these crimes, why are their faces covered. Internationally big bureaucrat can show their faces what is wrong in showing them to public. People will be aware of them next time.shame on India

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

I dont understand " Police swung into action". where and when were the sketches of criminals drawn ? How did they know of their position. With whom did they enquire ? In many gang rape cases it usually takes a few days to capture people. How come these criminals were caught in a day ? The journalists should look whether the cops already knew them and allowed them to freely roam

I don't know why the department covering this criminals face? Let us see these achievers. Actually the department has to put their photo's on posters (flex), TV, local channels & news papers to see all public. These department can do encounter on the spot. That is good punishment for these type of criminals. Otherwise they will come out within a few days & enjoying to start these type of criminal activities.

The victim showed great courage by reporting to the police. I can't understand why the criminals' faces should be covered as if they are the victims. They should be shown so that the public will be aware of them and punished publicly.

As this news is being frequently shown on NDTV and other English & Hindi Channels today full day , the name of Mangalore has been once again tarnished by Criminals at national level. Unfortunately already the shameless politicians are said to be at work to get them bail. What a rotten society we have in our Parashurama Srishti.

There are many such similar gangs who blackmail Students from OTHER STATES studying MAINLY IN MEDICAL COLLEGES in DK & Udupi and extract a huge ransom. But since these Outside Students do not give police complaint such cases do not come out. Eight culprits now caught can surely reveal the names of other gangs if the Police try Aeroplane.

This is a safety concern of students pursuing their professional courses in Deralakatte.

And, colleagues pursuing medicine in one institution who go out and eat outside even at night is a very much normal thing. But these ba...rds have no right to touch them.

But situation like these would definitely deter parents to send their wards to places like Deralakatte. Hence, I think College management should also has a role to keep the vicinity of their medical colleges free from anti social elements in the interest of their student's safety as the above incident was said to be taken place only few meters away from the college main gate.

Hope the criminals are punished and these innocent professionals get justice.

Salute to Police team. A job well done.

Derlakatte looks like turning into an epicenter of notorious criminals. Almost two years back a medical intern of Yenepoya College was kidnapped, demanding a huge amount of ransom, but with the timely involvement of Police, the culprits were caught and the boy was released.

This is the similar incident, but too dangerous and shameful.

The kingpin of the group should be given capital punishment and the rest should be awarded 10 years jail term.

I feel like kicking these culprits between their two legs for doing this horrible crime. Its not a concrete jungle anymore where you kidnap, blackmail and torture innocent people,like before. These silly jobless, criminal minded rowdies should be prisoned for at least five years so as others to learn a lesson. They should hang themselves for doing such a crime. Its so annoying to see such a thing happen in a beautiful city like Mangalore where there are already a dozens of troubles in hand. Mangaloreans please stop doing sick things like this and dont spoil Mangaloreans image- for God's sake.

When I was small I used to see women and children breaking rocks to make aggregate, for their dailyhood,these people should be made to do that, for their whole life,by just providing one meal a day, that is the right punishment for these people. that will reduce the fat from around their bottom.

I am doubting that the persons caught are the real Culprits. May be some Innocents are caught and Police Cover the faces and say the Culptits are caught as an eye wash to fool the public. This often happens. Why the Police are not showing their faces and just covering the faces with Black Cloth. What is the real motive behind this ?

Shashi Shetty, Santhoor/ Chennai
Sunday, December 22, 2013

As rightly said by Mr. Lokesh.. I watched similar scene one Hindi movie. Where in a actor who was a struggling lawyer being persuaded by a policeman to disguise himself with a hood as a absconding 6th accused. If that is true in real life then... this a very big money making machine for few lazy shameless geeks.

Two days back when this News appeared here in DW, some readers had commented that this is a Chandamama Story, Gubbakka Story fabricated by the Students. Some commented as usual that - Daal Mein Kuch Kaalaa hai and doubted the sincerity of those two Students itself. Many found fault with only that Girl as usual.
Now this true story must have put some sense the filthy mind of such readers.

The courage of that girl is highly appreciable. These criminals are caught only due to her courage and presence of mind. She has averted many such future crimes also, because 3 criminals are already Rowdy-Sheeters, so this gang seems to be past masters in such crimes and they have successfully committed similar crimes earlier also but did not get caught and students from other states must have paid ransom and got released.
The new anti-Rape Law should also be applied to this case (however that boy is innocent) and culprits should be given highest punishment under this new law as they have spoiled the life of that girl.
(Aranya Mantri please do not interfere).

This dare devil and supposedly well planned act, and the confidence of the perpetrators, of kidnapping students from a prominent public place for ransom suggests that this is not the first instance but has been going on for long!! Sounds similar to the recent infamous Shakti Mills case!! Needs thorough interrogation and investigation!!

Just Apply shareeah law.. and hang them in public.. no more words. Excellent work by police.

When they do the Kidnapping or any Crime they don't feel ashamed but now to show their faces why they feel ashamed ? Police show show the public the faces and not cover.

If faces shown all citizens of DK, Udipi and India will remember and will remember and will be alert always. I like Karan Katapadi comments. Please and Please show their faces...

Sunday, December 22, 2013

I fully agree with Vincent Rodrigues comments. Let the public know who are these culprits and they need to be punished by putting them in Jail and put them into tough kind of environment and bail system should be abolished putting them in bars for at least a year which will teach them what is life all about, is not just easy money but, sweat yourself for your living OR else what is the benefit of our brave and honest policemen in uniform who have exhausted all resource in order to arrest the culprits. Need to compliment our policemen in uniform for excellent job and dedication. by doing so you not only help the policemen in motivation but, look after the safety of every citizen of our country specially Mangalore.

If I remember correctly 20-25 years back down the road Mangalore was a peaceful place but, today it is just the opposite. We need to think positive and work positive to bring peace to our native land. Please let the people see these culprits with their face open and not covered so that next time people can be alert of them. Once again congrats to all the policemen in uniform.
