An FIR has been registered against jailed former minister Amarmani Tripathi's son for allegedly abducting a contractor and trying to extort money from him, police said on Thursday.

The FIR was registered against Amanmani Tripathi and his four aides on the complaint of contractor R K Pandey at the Cantt police station on Wednesday, a police spokesman said in Lucknow. Pandey alleged that Tripathi abducted him yesterday after intercepting his car.

"I was tortured and extortion money was demanded from me," he said. He was later allowed to go.

Amanmani is the son of Amarmani Tripathi, who is in jail in the murder case of poetess Madhumita Shukla. He had contested the 2012 Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh from Nautanwa seat on SP ticket, but lost.
