While seven have been arrested, including six from city and one from the vehicle in Anantapur, Mustafa and 5 others are absconding.
Hussain, a resident of Kismatpura, was abducted from his under-construction clinic at Bandlaguda by four burqa-clad men on Tuesday afternoon. On being alerted by locals, Cyberabad police launched a manhunt to nab the kidnappers by forming 12 special teams.
A few hours after the kidnap, the accused sent a voice message to Hussain’s family through WhatsApp demanding Ra 10 crore as ransom in the form of bitcoins.

Based on the confession of the accused and technical evidence, Cyberabad police alerted Anantapur cops about the movement of the accused in a Bolero vehicle towards Karnataka.
Rapthadu sub inspector PT Anjaneyulu and his team first spotted the gang near Marur toll plaza in Anantapur district at 2 am on Wednesday. After an an hour long chase, police surrounded the gang, forcing the accused to abandon the vehicle along with the dentist. Police managed to arrest one of the kidnappers, Sanjay, 19, a student from Udipi in Karnataka.
“Anantapur police intercepted the kidnappers while they were escaping towards Kanaganapalli and rescued the victim,” Cyberabad commissioner V C Sajjanar said.
“Mustafa used to stay in Australia and he incurred huge loss in business. Subsequently, he returned to India and started real estate business in Hyderabad and Pune. Mustafa, who knew about the financial condition of Hussain, hatched a plan to kidnap him along with his friend Mubashir alias Khaled,” Sajjanar said.
The duo roped in other accused from Hyderabad, Pune and Karnataka to execute the plan.
Hussain, who suffered minor injuries on his hands while trying to resist the kidnappers at Bandlaguda, thanked the cops at the press conference.
“I would have been a dead today. I think within 10 minutes of being chased they decided to kill me, but the rescue team saved me,” Hussain said.
Six other accused including Mistafa, Ganesh, Mubashir, Puneet, Prithvi and Siri are absconding. Police seized three cars, seven cell phones, toy pistols and other incriminating evidence from the accused.
