Namakkal (TN): A 19-year old boy has been arrested on charges of kidnapping a minor girl, the police said on Saturday.

Narrating details of the case, the police said four 15-year old girls studying at a government school in Pallipalayam had left for home with four boys on May 13. When they did not return, their parents complained to the police.

The police traced them to Kanyakumari on May 16 and brought them back. As one girl refused to go with her parents, the police registered a case for kidnapping against her lover, a 19-year old boy.

He has been remanded to 15-days' judicial custody and lodged in Trichengode sub-jail, sources said, adding other boys and girls were warned and allowed to go with their parents.
