Bengaluru: A techie from Chennai has allegedly been abducted by his former employees for the fourth time in just one month. This was after he allegedly failed to pay them their salaries.

The 23-year-old Sujay had started a business that ran for a month and had to be shut down. He had allegedly not paid his employees their salaries. The employees then allegedly abducted him.

According to the Halasuru Police, Sujay’s father has filed a complaint with the police alleging that eight of Sujay’s former employees abducted him thrice between March 21 and 26.

This was after Sujay was not able to disburse their salaries since January 2019.

Police believe that Sujay was allegedly abducted for the fourth time on Monday as he has been missing since then.

Sujay, along with a few friends, had started a company called FGL Infotech near Electronic City in January 2019.

However, the firm shut down within a month due to management issues.

According to police, on March 21, Sujay was allegedly contacted by two employees and asked him to meet them at a bank near Halasuru.

When Sujay arrived, they allegedly forced him into a car and took him to a secluded area and assaulted him with an iron rod.

Sujay was dropped back home on March 23.

Police said that Sujay was once again abducted on March 25 while he was on his way to Tamil Nadu. Once again, he was allegedly beaten up with an iron rod.

When Sujay told the duo that he was going to Tamil Nadu to bring money, his abductors allegedly let him go.

However, when the former employees realised that Sujay had not left for Tamil Nadu, they allegedly abducted him once again and took him to a farmhouse near Maddur.

However, once Sujay was released on Monday, he was abducted again and has been missing since. The police are trying to track him and the other employees down.

The Halasur Police have registered an FIR under sections 363 (abduction), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 339 (wrongful restraint) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC.
