Pune: The Pune police recently arrested five men for allegedly kidnapping a 31-year-old businessman, parading him naked on the streets and filming the act after there was a misunderstanding over payment of an SUV, police said.
According to the police, the complainant Raj Shinge, 31, owns a garage and deals with SUV repairs.

He said they also paraded him naked, filmed him, snatched his gold chain and left him near the house after two hours.
Shinge then filed a complaint with the police and the accused – Saher Shaikh (36); Matin alias Naushad Khan (24); Rahil Shaikh (25); Siddiqui Shaikh (28) and Umed Shaikh (24) – were arrested. They were booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
