In the process of executing their plan, Mustafa became nearer to the family with a plea of getting a flat on rent for Mubhashir in the newly constructed building of the victim. Without anticipating the danger from the accused, the victim gave a flat on rent to the accused Mibashir at Bandlaguda. On the plea of visiting the flat which is under construction, the accused inquired about the financial wellbeing off of the victim and decided to abduct him to extort money.
In order to achieve their goal, they joined hands with one Ganesh alias Guniya of Pune and through him, they joined the other accused persons who hail from Pune Maharashtra viz., Sumit Chandrakanth Bhosale, Akshay Balu Vairekar, and Vicky Datta Shinde into their team by offering good amount in return. They also joined hands with one Imran and his brother Irfan who hail from Kukatpally duly offering illegal gains.

The job of the second team is to shift the abducted victim to a safe location in Karnataka state till they receive the ransom from the family.

They threatened the life of family members including the wife, father, and kids of the victim if the required amount is not paid within 48 hours. They threatened even not complaining to the Police.

Accordingly, on 27.10.2020 at 1315 hours when the victim along with his technician was available in the clinic, the accused Raheem informed the accused Sumit, Akshay, Vicky, and Salman about the availability of a Dentist in the clinic. They immediately went inside the clinic by wearing Burkhas and pushed the victim and his technician aside duly covering their faces with a cloth and thereby injured him with toy Pistols and also threatened him with dire consequences. They put the technician inside the washroom duly tying his hands and mouth. They abducted the victim in his car and took him to Yellamma Banda of Kukatpally where they kept him till late at night and sent a voice message to the family members demanding huge cash.
