Two persons were arrested on Monday by the Kora police on the charge of kidnapping a 9th standard student from Brahmasandra in Tumkur. The arrested persons have been identified as Manju (30) and Siddaraju (26), both from Muddenahalli in Tumkur taluk. The police said that the accused had gone to Rushimathi High School in Brahmasandra on February 1 and told the teacher that Sushmitha’s father was admitted to hospital and that they had come to fetch her. The accused then hired a car to go to Bangalore. The driver of the car got suspicious and questioned Sushmitha about the men. She told him that she did not know who they were and where they were taking her. Soon the accused fled the place. The driver took the girl to her parents.
