South India

Though the abducted PA has been released, the motive behind the incident is yet to be known. 

In a daring act, a five-member gang on Wednesday, September, 23 kidnapped a personal assistant of Tamil Nadu’s Minister for Animal Husbandry Udumalai K. Radhakrishnan at knife point from the minister’s office at Udumalpet in Tiruppur district.

The gang later released the Minister’s aide in Dhali near Udumalpet, according to new agency reports.  The police said that Karnan, one of the personal aides of the Minister, was kidnapped by men who came to the office in a car around 11.30 a.m. on Wednesday.

A woman staff member was present with Kannan at the office at that time. However, the gang did not harm her.

Surveillance camera visuals from the office showed four men coming out of white car parked outside the office, while the driver remained at the wheel. Three men went inside the office and a youth stood outside. The video showed the three men who went inside the office coming out with Karnan, after a minute. The men forcibly took Karnan inside the car and left the spot.

Tiruppur District (Rural) Superintendent of Police Disha Mittal and senior officers visited the spot soon after the incident. While the police were making efforts to trace the gang, the kidnappers left Karnan at Dhali, around 10 km away from Udumalpet (with inputs from agencies)

The motive behind the abduction was not known, police said.
