Man Kidnaps Himself Because His Family Pressurized Him To Find A Job.
Man Kidnaps himself? Yes, you read that title correct. 22-year-old Anuj Upadhya has staged his own kidnapping so that his family wouldn’t bother him about getting a job.
This 22 year old Gujarat native has left to Mumbai on July 25 without informing his parents. Only his cousin named Ankit knew about his mumbai trip. There Anuj stayed in his relatives house hoping to escape from his questioning parents. But things didn’t go quite well as Anuj planned when his relatives started to inquire about how the job hunt was going. They started questioning him frequently as his parents did. Anuj was really fed up. And all of a sudden he formulated a master plan. That is to fake his own kidnapping.
This unemployed graduate who was fed up of the questions and pressure from his family has left his relatives house, without informing anyone, not even his cousin Ankit.
On August 2, Ankit received a message from Anuj’s cellphone stating that Anuj was kidnapped by ISIS and they are going to kill Anuj in four days.
Ankit must be pretty freaked out after receiving this missage. He rushed to the Tardeo police station and filed a case. The policed filed a kidnapping case and took the matter seriously as ISIS was involved in the kidnapping based on Anuj’s message. The police tracked Anuj’s cellphone to Andheri and caught him there. Later he was taken to the police station for further questioning about how his kidnapping. It was then, when Anuj admitted that he has staged the whole kidnapping to get away from his family for a while.
A police officer said “We found nothing suspicious hence he was allowed to go. The whole process took a lot of manpower and the ATC, local police and ATS officials were also on the job,” DCP zone III, Pravin Padwal, said, “As he was a grown-up, he was expected to get a job to earn a living, but he did not wish to work so he just left his Gujarat house. He was questioned in the matter and has now been handed over to his family.”
Bravo, gentleman. He did all these just to avoid working. Give that man a cookie.
