Karwar: Karwar Railway Police handed over two youths to Uttar Pradesh Police, on Monday, after their ‘kidnap’ ploy boomerangs.

According to railway police officials, they received a message from Goa police that two youths were heading towards Karwar from Goa in Samparka Kranthi train.

Based on the input the railway police enquired about Bhavesh Pathak (22) and his cousin and arrested them. Both are residents of Kolwali, in Raibareli district, of Uttar Pradesh.

The two had planned to extort Rs 25lakh from Bhavesh’s father claiming he had been kidnapped, so that they could lead a luxury life.

The two were missing from New Delhi from June 7. Though their parents searched for them in Delhi and other places they could not find them.

Later they received a message from the mobile of Bhavesh that he had been kidnapped and would be released only after the kidnappers were paid Rs 25lakh. The father, C V Pathak, had already planned to sell his land to secure his son.

However, Uttar Pradesh police grew suspicious when they noticed that the message was sent from Goa mobile tower.

When Uttar Pradesh police officials and C BPathak arrived in Goa, they had left the State.

On Monday, Karwar railway police handed over the two youths to the Uttar Pradesh police and his father.
