A five-year-old boy was allegedly kidnapped by an unidentified woman from the hill temple of Lord Venkateswara on Sunday.

According to police, mother of the boy, Swathi, ekes out her living by applying ‘tilakam’ to the visiting pilgrims. Everyday, she makes the boy sit at a particular place in front of the main temple complex and goes about her work. Her husband Venkataramana works at a local eatery.
