“On Wednesday, Vidya’s father Arumugam received an anonymous call that his daughter had been kidnapped and would be released for a ransom of Rs 10 lakh.
Probe with the help of call records led to the arrest of Mano from Karaikal.
Interrogation of Mano revealed that he and Vidya were said to be in a relationship for a few years and both allegedly hatched a plan to get Rs 10 lakh from Vidya’s father as Mano was in need of money to go abroad.
