Techie escapes kidnapping bid in BTM Layout; rushes to auto drivers for help, gets turned away
A33-year-old software engineer had a traumatic experience recently in BTM Layout while walking back home after dinner. Two men attacked him, stole his wallet and tried to forcibly take him to an ATM. He eventually managed to escape, but in the process got punched in the face. The auto drivers he caught up with near a mall refused to take him, rattled by his bloodied face and shirt. The police have filed an FIR and the attackers are yet to be caught.
Anubhav Vishwakarma, a resident of BTM Layout II Stage is a native of Uttar Pradesh and works as a software engineer at a reputed IT firm in RMZ Ecospace on Outer Ring Road. The incident happened on Sunday night around 11 pm near 10th Cross of NS Palya.
“I was just 300 metres from my house when the two men grabbed me from behind and tried to make me sit on their bike. From their conversation I gathered they wanted to take me to an ATM from where I could withdraw money for them,” explained Vishwakarma, adding that the two spoke in broken Hindi.
He put up a fight, but they managed to take his wallet (containing Rs 1,700 cash) and mobile phone. “They asked me the PIN numbers of the debit/credit cards, but I refused to tell them. They started punching me on the face and I realised I was bleeding profusely from the nose. Eventually, I managed to run away. I must have run 400 to 500 meters hoping to find help,” he told BM.
Near the Vega City Mall entrance, he found two autorickshaw drivers. He sought their help, requesting a drop home. But looking at his blood-stained clothes, they assumed it was a case of a major crime, and refused to take him.
Vishwakarma checked to see if he was still being followed. Once he was sure that the attackers had left, he walked back home. Under severe shock, he could lodge the complaint with Mico Layout police only the next day.
“The next day, I visited the spot with my friend and was told that the place is prone to robbery. In fact, just a few minutes before the robbery, when I took an alternative route, and not the one I usually take, a stranger warned me that there were robbers in the area. I should have paid heed to his advice, but I assumed BTM Layout would be safe,” he explained.
The police have registered a case under Section 394 (voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery) of the Indian Penal Code.
“The attackers are said to be in the age group of 20 to 25 years. The entire attack happened within five minutes or so. We’re looking at CCTV images and hunting for the two men,” said a police officer investigating the case.

Chennai techie murder: Akash watched the flames engulf Indhuja, then sped away
Indhuja was dead by the time her body was brought to the ambulance; her mother and sister who rushed to save her suffered burn injuries
Charred footwear and a blackened staircase were all that remained, indicative of the gruesome incident of Monday night. S. Indhuja had been burnt alive by a classmate reportedly because she had spurned his proposal.
For residents of Divya Darshini Flats in Saraswathi Nagar, Adambakkam, the first sign of trouble happening in their apartment was the screams they heard around 8-45 p.m. from the first floor flat. They were shocked to see flames and smoke pouring out from under the door to the house.
R. Ragu, D. Ilayaraja and Ramkumar, all neighbours, sensed trouble and rushed to help. Speaking to The Hindu, Mr. Ragu said, “Initially, we switched off power supply thinking the fire was due to an electrical short-circuit. We were unable to breathe inside the flat as the smoke was thick by then. Using a mobile phone torch, we reached Indhuja’s mother Renuka, 47, and her sister Nivedha, 19, who was writhing in pain. Renuka was screaming, asking us to rescue her daughter caught inside a room.”
Mr. Ilayaraja added: “The room was pitch dark and our foot hit something. We found that there was a charred body on the ground. We brought all of them down and alerted the police control room and ambulance service. The ambulance staff told us Indhuja was dead.”
What transpired at the house became apparent later. M. Akash and Indhuja had known each other in school, and, of late, he claimed he was in love with her, though she seemed uninterested. Recently, Indhuja quit her job at a start-up and her parents were seeking grooms for her. When Akash heard of this, he started threatening her.
Police sources said, on Monday night, when Indhuja refused to respond to his calls, Akash went to her house. While the family initially refused to open the door for him, they relented after he pleaded that he only wanted to talk to her for a few minutes. The ‘chat’ slowly turned into an argument and on being shouted at by Indhuja and her family, he stepped out and brought into the house a can containing petrol that he had brought with him. He doused her, and himself, with the fuel, but set only her on fire with his cigarette lighter.
According to the family’s account, he stood there until the flames engulfed her, and escaped. He sped away on a bike, and the neighbours could not catch him though they scanned the area for him.
Indhuja’s mother Renuka and Nivedha, who went to her rescue, also suffered serious burn injuries. Renuka’s son, who is 16, was also there but was not affected. The two women were rushed to the Government Kilpauk College Hospital. Police believe that the fuel used was kerosene or petrol, but remnants will be tested.
A special police team led by Adambakkam Inspector Murali launched a hunt for Akash across the city.
After his bike was spotted near Adambakkam bus stand, police traced him to his grandmother’s house in Karappakkam on Tuesday morning.
Akash was booked for murder and attempt to murder and other related offences. During investigation, it was found that he had left a farewell note to some of his friends and his family members. He admitted that he had planned to commit suicide, but ran away after he saw Indhuja burn.
Akash was produced before Judicial Magistrate, Alandur, A. Sultan Aribeen for remand. The magistrate ordered the judicial custody of the accused until November 28. He was lodged in Central Prison, Puzhal.
Techie kills wife for dowry;
father, techie arrested for dowry death
Gop: Police Sunday detained the husband and father-in-law of a 30-year-old woman who was allegedly killed over dowry at Mohanty Sahi of Sorabha here.
Chinmay Swain, an engineer by profession, and his father Fakir Swain were arrested after the former’s wife Anusaya died under mysterious circumstances.
The deceased’s father Fakir Charan Swain, a resident of Dahikhia village in Kakatpur police limits, alleged that his daughter was murdered by her in-laws for dowry.
According to sources, Swain’s daughter Anusaya married Chinmay in 2014. During the wedding, Rs 10 lakh cash, gold jewelleries and household items were given as dowry.
“Chinmay was working in Andhra Pradesh and living there with my daughter. He forced my daughter to terminate her pregnancies several times. As a result, she became weak. She recently told me over phone that her husband had an extra-marital affair with another girl,” the deceased’s father alleged.
“When she was living with her in-laws, her mother-in-law Labanya, father-in-law Fakir, brothers-in-law Bijay and Ajay used to torture her,” Fakir Charan alleged.
“I learnt from others that my daughter has died and rushed to her in-laws’ house. However, they abused me and drove me out of their house. Left with no option, I approached the police,” the bereaved father said.
A case of murder has been registered. Gop inspector-in-charge Sushil Kumar Mishra and other officials visited the house and inquired into the matter.
“We have detained the deceased’s husband and father-in-law. Other accused are absconding and efforts are on to nab them,” police said.
A loan-some couple, and dirty pictures| Bangalore Mirror Bureau
There are three sides to every story – the victim’s version, the accused’s tale and the truth. In this story, however, there are three players – all of them techies – and a lot of allegations and counter allegations, apart from some dirty pictures.
In June, a techie couple (let’s call them H and S as the tale has been taking dramatic turns and police seem to be nowhere close to the truth) living in Hennur alleged that Gautham was blackmailing them with some nude pictures of S. Gautham was arrested and he soon secured bail.
Gautham has now filed a complaint at Viveknagar police station (as he was living in that area till 2014) and has alleged that the couple had, in fact, borrowed Rs 37 lakh from him. He has alleged that when he asked for his money to be repaid, the couple “threatened to file a false case against him”.
The genesis of the case
Gautham has told the police that he befriended S who was also living in the same locality with her husband. He has claimed that she borrowed Rs 7 lakh from him since her family was constructing a house in the city. He has also claimed that in 2017, S along with her husband and father borrowed Rs 33 lakh from him, saying that they were having cash flow problems, halfway into the construction of the house. The couple promised to repay the
loan in a couple of months but gave him only Rs 3 lakh, alleged Gautham.
When he put pressure on the couple, a “false case” was lodged against him in the Hennur police station, he alleged. After securing bail, when Gautham approached the couple for the rest of his money, they “threatened that they would file more such cases against him”, he claimed.
“We have asked Gautham for the required documents, including video and some hard copies,” said a Viveknagar police official, adding that the veracity of the claim was being looked into.
In the meantime, the police have registered cases against all three under sections 420 (cheating), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) read with 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

- He is a habitual offender as he was booked in another similar case five months ago
PUNE: The software engineer arrested on Monday for showing porn to a schoolgirl on June 17 had indulged in a similar offence in February on Pashan-Baner link road.
The Chatushrungi police took the techie, Kalpesh Prabhakar Gharat (32), into custody on Tuesday on the basis of the complaint lodged by a 15-year-old schoolgirl on February 26. “The complainant has identified the suspect,” said an officer of the Chatushrungi police.
