Nagamma, a resident of Keelukote area in Kolar town, on Friday complained to the District Election Officer D.S. Vishwanath that her husband, who is contesting as an independent candidate from Vibhutipura (Ward No 28) in the Kolar City Municipal Council, has been abducted.

According to Ms. Nagamma, her husband, Muniraju, made a mobile phone call after he went out early in the morning saying that he had been kidnapped.

“My husband asked me to take care of myself and children,” she added. The phone was disconnected immediately and she could not contact Mr. Muniraju thereafter as the mobile phone remained switched off. A complaint has been lodged with the Town Police in this connection.
