A college student from Kanpur staged his own kidnapping after losing money for his fees in an online game. The first-year BSc student, named Shivshankar, also demanded a ransom of Rs 1 lakh from his family.

When the family members informed the police, they found the student within 24 hours.

The incident took place in the Mangalpur Jaitipur village of Kanpur where Shivshankar's parents gave him Rs 30,000 to pay coaching fees and buy books.

He lost money on an online gaming platform and later staged his own abduction to extract money from family members.

He created a false story of his kidnapping and

told family members that the kidnappers were asking for Rs 1 lakh as a ransom, otherwise, they would kill him.

Later on, he called them and asked for Rs 12,000 as he had arranged the rest of the amount. After that, his father went to the police station to file a complaint.

He told them that his son was in the Rura area and urged them to find him. With the help of surveillance, the police were able to find his son.

During interrogation, the student revealed that he faked his kidnapping as he had lost all the money given by his parents for his coaching fees.

The police are further investigating the matter.
