Two Arrested For Kidnapping 14 Year Indian Boy

Police in Limbe have arrested two men for allegedly kidnapping a 14-year-old boy of Indian origin.

Limbe Police Station spokesperson Patrick Mussa said the two are Charles Laston, aged 22, from Majawa Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Mabuka in Mulanje, and Isaac Mpindo(24) from Mphwere Village in T/A Nkanda in Chiradzulu.

“It is believed that the two together with other three accomplices, whilst armed with panga knives, attacked the victim who was going to a temple near Hardware [Bus Stage] in Limbe.

“It is further believed that they demanded money from the victim but he had no money at that time, as a result they took his cellphone worth K200,000,” said Mussa.

The spokesperson said the suspects then took the boy into a bush and used the cellphone to demand a ransom of K6 million from his father.

“The sum of K1 million was sent to them before releasing the boy who was left at Puma Filling Station in Makhetha in Machinjiri Township in Blanytre,” he said.

The two have since been charged with kidnapping, an offence which contravenes Section 263 of the Penal code, and will appear before court soon.
