Bengaluru: Police officials tracked a 20-year-old youth who allegedly faked his own kidnapping in an attempt to extort Rs 5 lakh from his father.

Makthum Saab, 20, is a resident of Kurubarahalli, Mahalakshmipuram, and a private firm employee. The youth confessed that he had spent a lot of money on his girlfriend. But sadly, his girlfriend died in a road accident in early August.

Also, in order to fulfill his wishes for branded clothes and mobile phones, the youth took a loan of Rs 3 lakh.

On September 13, Makthum’s father Ghani Saab filed a police complaint saying unidentified miscreants had abducted his son and were demanding Rs 5 lakh.

He further said that his son left home on September 12 and since his phone is switched off.

Police officials swung into action and found that Makthum was in Tirupati and had reached there using a self-driven car. Officials realised there was something fishy and kept an eye on him in Tirupati.

Another team of  police officials began searching for the abductors. But they soon realised that he wasn’t been kidnapped and detained him before bringing him back to the city on September 14 evening.
