Indian film producer GHULAM RASOOL and two associates have been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping.
The movie mogul is accused of abducting another filmmaker, Harinaamsingh Ranjeetsingh, in an effort to end a stalemate situation over a movie project both producers began in 2007.
Police reports suggest Ranjeetsingh was abducted from a movie studio on Friday (04Jul08) and taken to Rasool's home in Mumbai, where he was beaten and forced to sign blank contracts, according to the Times of India.
