Realtor abduction case: Woman among 6 held in Vizag

Visakhapatnam: PM Palem police have arrested six people including prime accused KV Hemanth Kumar for kidnapping realtor Pasi Ramakrishna.

It may be recalled that Ramakrishna was kidnapped by rowdy-sheeter Hemanth and his associates on Monday. They demanded a ransom of Rs one crore. The victim was rescued by the PM police near Vizianagaram.

The arrested have been identified as KV Hemanth Kumar (27), Sayyed Rehan (27), K Pavan Raj Kumar (22), P Kiran (19), A Madhusudhan Rao (23), and S Subba Lakshmi (48).

Police said Ramakrishna, a resident of JV Agraharam, has been in the real-estate business for some time. He and Hemanth were known to each other.

Hemanth hatched a plan to kidnap Ramakrishna and extort money. He approached five others and offered them Rs 50 lakh. Madhusudhan Rao and his associates helped Hemanth to kidnap the realtor.

On June 3, Hemanth informed Ramakrishna that the owner of an IT company wants his land to be developed. He told him that he wants villas to be constructed on the land at Rushikonda. On June 20, he invited him to a guest house for a meeting with the owner and verification of documents.

Hemanth had already hired a car and parked it at the Guest House. When Ramakrishna arrived, Hemanth and his associates gagged him and tied his hand and legs before abducting him from the spot.

When the driver Kalamati Ravi objected, they threatened to kill him. They forcibly made him drive the car towards Padmanabham. They made the realtor call his kin and ask for money.

In the meanwhile, the owner of the guest house informed the PM police. Fearing police action, the kidnappers fled leaving behind the victim and the driver. Police later managed to nab the kidnappers. They also nabbed a woman, who is in a relationship with the prime accused.
