On the basis of those footages, the special police nabbed a five-member gang on the main road of Alaghar temple. Two people fled the scene. A college student named Arunan (age 23) from Alanganallur Mettupatti was rescued from them. Following this, the police took the above 3 people to the police station.


When interrogating Arun, the abducted college student,

“I came to know about crypto currency business while studying in Coimbatore last year. It was said that if you invest 40 thousand rupees, you will get 2000 interest every week. I told my friends about this. Along with my friends I have invested in cryptocurrency.

In this case, I got information that the crypto currency company I invested in has been closed. My friends who studied with me in college in Coimbatore said ‘We invested only by trusting you; So you have to pay the 36 lakhs that we have invested.’ Because I did not agree to this, they kidnapped me, took away my cell phone and beat me up,” he said.

On interrogation of others it was confirmed that they had threatened Rs 16 lakh. Arvind Kumar, Sasikumar and Karthikeyan, who kidnapped the college student, have been arrested in this connection. Apart from this, Thallagulam police are searching for Prasanna and Anand, who escaped with their phone numbers.
