In a sensational case, Yavatmal Police nabbed a Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) office-bearer Shubham Tolani (25), a transgender and four others on Monday night within 12 hours for abducting a local businessman’s teenage son and demanding Rs 50 lakh for his release.

The businessman Ishwar Nachwanis teenage son Harsh Nachwani was returning from his tuition class on his motorcycle on Monday morning, when he was stopped by a couple of men, who threatened him with a knife and then abducted him.

As Harsh did not return home on time, his family got worried and went to search for him in his tuition class, where he was not found. During the search, the family members found Harshs motorcycle in a nullah. They then approached and informed Avdhutwadi Police Station about the incident.

Meanwhile, Ishwar Nachwani received a 10-second video clip on his mobile phone where a shirtless and scared Harsh in an isolated open space could be seen requesting his father to pay Rs 50 lakh to save his life. One of the abductors could also be heard demanding the money in 1 hour.

Ishwar quickly informed the police, which swung in action immediately. The cops started scanning CCTV footages in different areas for a lead but could not get any. During the investigation, cops got suspicious about Shubham Tolani who had accompanied Ishwar Nachwani to the police station. Shubham was then interrogated by the police.

As per reliable sources, Nation Next learnt that Shubham got scared and started giving absurd reasons to leave the police station. This got the cops more suspicious who put surveillance on him. Shubham was later interrogated strictly, after which he confessed his role in kidnapping Harsh Nachwani. Shubham then took the cops in a house where Harsh was found along with other kidnappers.

Apart from Shubham, those involved in the kidnapping and extortion included: a transgender named Suraj alias Sapna Shukla working as a security guard at Shubhams home, Nilesh Unnarkat (37), Nitesh Rathod, Arvind Sable (26) and Satish Shelotkar (37).
