    Suresh planned to kidnap a wealthy person to make a large sum of money. He discussed his plan with Krishna and Nikhita, who suggested kidnapping her cousin Surender because he had recently bought a house and had money. Suresh and the others attempted to kidnap Surender multiple times but failed. Eventually, Suresh asked Nikhita to help by luring Surender to a secluded place. She called Surender and asked him to meet her at Khajaguda Lake under the pretense of discussing personal matters. The gang then kidnapped him.

    Nikhita went to the police station and filed a complaint about Surender’s kidnapping. She pretended to assist the family and the police. Meanwhile, Suresh contacted Surender’s family and demanded a ransom of Rs 2 crore for his release. Special police teams located Surender in Kadthal, Rangareddy district, and informed the local police there. When the gang realized they were being pursued, they abandoned Surender and fled.
