A school classmate of Kusuma, accused Ravi Singh has been pestering her to marry him.
Two days after they were kidnapped from Bowenpally, Kusuma and her twins were rescued by police on Wednesday by arresting the woman’s school classmate.
Accused Ravi Singh (26), who was in love with the woman before she got married, wanted to force the woman to live with him by kidnapping her but was caught at Jalgaon in Maharashtra, North zone DCP Ch. Srikanth said at a press conference. Singh and Kusuma hailed from the same village of Rajasthan and were classmates in the school.
According to the DCP, both of them loved each other but the woman had eventually married Harsingh Chowhan at the instance of her family members. Singh, working as zonal sales manager of Airtel, was recently transferred from Gujarat to Aurangabad in Maharashtra.
He began coming to Hyderabad now and then and harassing the woman. He would ask the woman to desert her husband and two children and live with him, the police said. As the woman refused to do so, he came to her house on Monday evening and found her son Bhagawat, 2, playing outside.
He dragged the boy into his car and was speeding away when the boy’s mother noticed it and chased the car to some distance. After a while, he stopped his vehicle and threatened to kill the boy if she didn’t go along with him.
Helpless, the woman got into the car carrying her two-year-old daughter Bhagawati, the police said. He was taking the woman and her twins to Aurangabad, when the police tracking his movements after analysing his mobile phone calls caught him at Jalgaon and rescued the trio.
