(J) Kidnapped

A Sardarji who was down on his luck decided to make some money by kidnapping a kid and holding him to ransom.

He went to the playground, grabbed a kid, dragged him behind a tree and told him, "I've kidnapped you."

The Sardarji then wrote a note saying: "I've kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning, put Rs 2 lakhs in a paper bag and put the paper bag beneath the mango tree on the north side of the city playground". Signed - A Sardarji.

The Sardarji then pinned the note onto the kid's shirt and sent him home to show it to his parents.

The next morning the Sardarji checked, and sure enough, a paper bag had been placed beneath the mango tree. The boy was sitting next to the bag.

The Sardarji eagerly opened up the bag and found the Rs 2 lakhs in cash with a note that said: "How can one Sardarji do this to a fellow Sardarji? Take the money, and please let my son go!" Signed - Another Sardarji.
