A love-sick soldier that fabricated his own kidnapping in the West Bank in a bid to win back his former girlfriend, along with his accomplice, was formally indicted on multiple charges Wednesday, including fraud and filing a false police report.

The Jerusalem District Attorney's Office filed charges against Niv Asraf,22, and Eran Nagaukar, 22, after the latter submitted a fraudulent missing person's report for Asraf, prompting a massive manhunt by security forces near Hebron.
