Recording studio owner arrested for kidnapping former employee | Bombay News

The victim was rushed to hospital by his parents, after which a case of kidnapping and assault was registered with Bangur Nagar police station.

Mumbai: A 23-year-old man was kidnapped and assaulted by his former employer and his accomplice over a business rivalry. The police on Saturday arrested the plaintiff’s former employer, Ranvir Rajput, and his four accomplices.

Plaintiff Anuj Bhagchandra Kiraag had been working for Rajput in his film recording studio for two years where he started as a rookie and mastered the art of recording and editing.

Police officers from Bangur Nagar said that a few months ago Kiraag quit his job and opened his own recording studio in Goregaon. Agents said Rajput got information from his accomplices that Kiraag poached his clients and stole some video tapes from his studio.

Angered by this information, Rajput had met Kiraag and threatened him last Wednesday. Kiraag did not move and told Rajput that he would approach the police if he continued to threaten him.

On Friday, police said Rajput and four of his friends identified as Sonu, Ashish, Sagar and Krishna abducted Kiraag as he left his studio at 11 p.m. and drove him to Palghar in Rajput’s quad. The accused then took Kiraag to Rajput’s farm in Palghar and assaulted him demanding that he shut down his studio and return the videos he had stolen from Rajput’s studio.

“Early on Saturday morning, Rajput and other defendants left Kiraag near his house in Goregaon West and fled,” a police officer from Bangur Nagar police station said.

The victim was rushed to hospital by his parents, after which a case of kidnapping and assault was registered with Bangur Nagar police station.

“Based on Kiraag’s statement, we had filed a case against the five defendants and arrested them on Saturday,” the officer added.
