In a surprizing incident Karnataka Police arrested a couple from Tamil Nadu’s Vellore District for hijacking a truck loaded with 2.5 tonnes of tomatoes after faking an accident to extort money from a farmer in Karnataka.

This happened while tomato prices across the nation were rising as a result of unfavourable weather. The arrested couple were identified as Bhaskar, aged 28 and his wife Sindhuja, aged 26.

Both happen to be a member of a group of highway robbers who stopped Mallesh, a farmer from Hiriyur in the Chitradurga District, on July 8, 2023 and demanded payment, saying his truck had collided with their vehicle. Mallesh was assaulted and abducted by the gang when he refused to pay them any money and the tomato-filled truck was taken along with them.

Reportedly, Mallesh was pushed out of the truck close to Devanahalli after getting online payment.
