Pune: A couple was sentenced to life imprisonment on Friday by Additional Sessions Judge JT Utpat for kidnapping a four-year-old girl and demanding a ransom of Rs 2 lakh from Dehu Road in February 2014.

The convicted couple has been identified as Udayram Banjare (29) and Puja Udayram Banjare (30). The couple hails from Chhattisgarh. On January 23, the couple, who were neighbours of the victim, told the victim’s parents that they are taking the girl to an event and will be back in the evening. However, the couple did not return in the evening and the victim’s parents lodged a complaint at Dehu Road police station.

On February 24, 2014 when the victim’s parents tried to contact the couple, they told them that they will be back in a few days along with their daughter. After a few days, Udayram called up the victim’s parents and asked for a ransom of Rs 2 lakh and warned them of consequences if they contact the police. Officials of Dehu Road police nabbed Udayaram and Puja from Bilaigad, Chhattisgarh and rescued the girl. PI Ram Jadhav and Assistant PI Satish Shinde had arrested the accused.
