Bengaluru: Bengaluru Police on Wednesday opened fire to arrest two people wanted in the kidnapping of former Karnataka MLA Varthur Prakash.

The accused are identified as Tamil Nadu-based criminal Kaviraj and his associate, Amaresh, from Bengaluru.

Indiranagar police inspector, Harish and Assistant Commissioner of Police (Halasuru Division) Kumar opened fire on them.

Police said they were forced to shoot as Kaviraj and Amaresh attacked search team members. They were shot at their knees when they tried to flee from their hideout in Byappnahalli in Bengaluru.

The former minister was abducted in November last year and was released after a ransom of reportedly Rs 48 lakh was paid.
