Police today took six youths, including four students from KGISL Institute of Technology for interrogation on charges of abducting another student and seeking a ransom of Rs.5 lakh from his parents.

According to a complaint lodged by the parents of the student, Gnana Anandan, police have started investigations after they managed to rescue him near Malumichampatti on the outskirts.
