The ransom in any abduction or kidnapping case always runs into millions or tens of millions of rupees if not more but here in such a case the abductors not only demanded a huge chunk of money but also 10 suits of Boski cloth, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.
Boski cloth is a spun silk, where the cocoon is slit open, the filament is removed in one mass to form a flux.
