Pune police on Monday registered an offence against two brothers and their driver for allegedly kidnapping and beating up their opponent during the elections of National Students Union of India (NSUI), the students' wing of Congress.
Police have identified the suspects as Shivraj More and Rututaj More, both residents of Karad and their car driver. Sumit Ganpat Bhosle (25), a student from Solapur, lodged an offence at the Hinjewadi police station.
Police said NSUI's state elections were held at Balewadi on Monday. Bhosale was an aspirant for the post of general secretary and Shivraj was contesting for the post of president from the opposite panel. Police said More brothers allegedly warned Bhosale not to vote against Shivraj.
They allegedly thrashed Bhosale, threatened him at knife-point and then forcibly kidnapped him in their car. Police said the brothers took Bhosale to a place near Shivsagar Mangal Karyalay on Baner Road where they beat him up and robbed him of Rs 55,000. The brothers then released him at Balewadi stadium. Police have booked the two and their driver under Section 363, 392, 323, 504, 506 (2), 34 of the IPC.
