`False alarm' about abduction

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, JUNE 27. With just a day to go for the Rajya Sabha elections, a "false alarm" about the abduction of an independent MLA from Narnaul in Haryana and his wife sent the Delhi police into a tizzy today. After over three hours of search, the MLA was traced and the matter closed after he claimed that he had not been abducted.

Around 12-30 p.m., the police received a call that an independent MLA from Haryana, Moola Ram, who had arrived in the Capital by flight this noon, had been abducted in a Toyota Qualis. According to his relative who had called the police, Mr. Ram and his wife were going in their vehicle when some men abducted them.

Acting on the complaint, the South Delhi police launched a vigorous search for the Qualis in which the MLA and his wife had been supposedly abducted and finally found it parked at Sunder Nagar where Mr. Ram and his wife had apparently gone to meet Surender Singh, the son of the Haryana Vikas Party (HVP) supremo, Bansi Lal. Mr. Ram told the police that he had come to meet Mr. Singh on his own. Interestingly, Mr. Singh's wife, Kiran Choudhary, is contesting in the Rajya Sabha elections from the Congress ticket.
