Two wanted in Pune for extortion, kidnapping case arrested in Sangli
Two people booked in cases of extortion and kidnapping in Pune were arrested from Sangli on Sunday morning.
The two were identified as Nilesh Ramchandra Shinde, 27, a resident of Walwa area of Sangli and Shailkesh Shankar Shinde, 26, a resident of Shirgaon area of Sangli. The two have a case of kidnapping and extortion registered against them at Chatuhshrungi police station in 2017.
They were arrested by the local crime branch of Sangli police at around 5am on Sunday. Suhail Sharma, superintendent of Sangli police, had issued orders to arrest all the people wanted and absconding in various cases and were at large. The two arrested men have been at large since they were booked in 2017 in a case under Sections 364(a), 385 and 34 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) at Chatuhshrungi police station.
Chetan Mahajan, a Sangli police constable, received information that the two had been hiding in a village near Tasgaon for the past year.
"Complainant Narayan Mansingh Rathod had submitted that his son Ganesh was kidnapped from an area near Pune-Bengaluru Highway (in 2017). The five accused in the case, Nitin Shinde, Nilesh Shinde, Shailesh Shinde, Ratnakar Mane and Mangesh Chaugule, were booked in that case. Nitin Shinde was arrested last year itself by Chatuhshrungi police. The others were at large," said police inspector Rajan Mane of Sangli local crime branch.
He also said that Ganesh had mediated between two men over a money-related issue. He was kidnapped for a day by one of the two parties over a disagreement.
