Ambarnath resident Lilly allegedly hired six goons to extort money from husband she divorced in 2004; This year they not only kidnapped him, but also robbed him of a fridge
The men who are trying to get out of paying alimony to their ex-wives, might want to read this.
Thirty-four-year-old Nalatambi Ramchandran Mudliar has alleged that his ex-wife Lilly, tried to kidnap him in a bid to get some money out of him.
As per the complaint lodged at the Antop Hill Police Station, Mudliar, who lives Dharavi’s Matunga Labour Camp, says that Lilly was not satisfied with the alimony she was awarded by the Bandra Family Court last year, when the two got divorced. After this, Lilly moved to Ambarnath.
Things were fine for a while. However, Mudliar, a refrigerator and air-conditioner mechanic, has said in his complaint that in May he began to receive calls from Lilly, demanding Rs 10,000. Additionally, he said other men would also call him threatening him with dire consequences if Lilly’s demands weren’t met.
When he didn’t give in, Mudliar said, six men – Ramu, Al-Gheshan, Murgesh Shah, Pintu, Nityanand Chandappan Devendra, and Dhanpal Singh Devendra – abducted him from his office at Sion Koliwada on May 31.
They then allegedly took him to Ambarnath and thrashed him repeatedly with bamboo sticks. They released him the same day after threatening him once again. Mudliar said that these men were goons hired by Lilly.
Mudliar added that Lilly’s demands continued, even though he had made it clear that he wasn’t going to give her any money. “Her goons also kept up the pressure by constantly calling me,” Mudliar said.
“On August 6, Ramu and Pintu returned and threatened me at knifepoint. They even robbed me of a fridge worth Rs 7,000,” he added.
Senior PI D N Deokar said, “Lilly even threatened to have Mudliar thrown into the sea if he didn’t give her the money. She even said that she had given these men, who were her friends, a supari for her former husband.”
Police said that Lilly has confessed to having masterminded the entire plot.
She has been remanded to police custody after being booked under Section 363 (kidnapping), 384 (extortion), 392 (robbery), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.
