The confrontation

However, Shilpa failed to cohorent answers following which the officials filed complaint in Puttur rural station under the guidance of child development project officer. During further interrogation, Shilpa spilled the beans and came clean about the kidnapping.

The confession

The woman revealed that she had fallen in love and married Mahesh from Kabaka, who was presently working at Bengaluru. Apparently, the couple had been driven away from their homes and hence used to rent houses sporadically. Recently, they were also in Puttur where they fought often in drunken stupor.
