He left a note explaining his action and a Rs 100 note in the pocket of his victim, Nelapatla Bittu, police said. When passers-by noticed the child alone, they inquired with him and he told them that he was dropped by a man. They called the police, who took custody of Bittu.
The police then made inquiries and identified the child as Bittu, who had gone missing a year ago. A missing complaint had been lodged then.
Police said that in the note left in Bittu’s pocket, purportedly written by the kidnapper, the unidentified man said he had found Bittu at Ghatkesar and had taken him home as he had three daughters and no son.
