    Now on Mangaluru/ DK, tukude tukude gangs are arising. Cops has taken swift action and arrested the abductor. Instead of arresting, if one or two were gun downed using "Encounter" some hot wave could have prevailed in the gangs. Any how not too late, start with first "police areophane" followed by royal police hospitality .

After slogging day and night in Gulf after arrival are demanding looks like hafta by local thugs or are involement of any earlier transactions where correct settlement not made yet. Bangalore based rowdy sheeter appointed druggists in mangalore as sharp shooters should need deep investigation.

    This is by far the stupidest kidnap I have ever came across... Culprits left all possible loose ends including their identity... It may be that all of them are unemployed and want to spent a few years as guests of government... Only hope that younger brother is not harmed by the idiots...
