TAMBARAM: A 15-year-old boy studying in a school in Pallikaranai, who called his father on Tuesday and informed him that he was kidnapped, was restored to his father the same evening. After three days of investigation, the police, however, established that the boy had staged a kidnap drama.
Police said they received a call from a resident of Kamakshi Nagar who said that he had got calls from two different numbers.
His son , who called once, told him that he had been kidnapped by unidentified men and was being taken in a car. Sometime later, the boy's father received another call and the caller told him that his son had fainted and he can pick him up near the Velachery railway station.
The boy's father rushed to the Velachery railway station along with his friends and managed to locate his son. He then lodged a complaint with police. When the police questioned the boy, he confessed to having staged the drama. He was suffering from severe headache and was unable to concentrate on his studies and hence decided to run away from home. He called his father from the public booth after placing a piece of cloth on the mouthpiece of the phone, police said. His father believed that it was a call from the kidnapper. Police let off the boy with an advice.
