Abducted boy rescued in 24 hours

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, APRIL 5. Eager to have a male child after his only son died, a man allegedly conspired with a woman to kidnap an 18-month-old boy from Seelampur in North-East Delhi. Both the accused were arrested and the boy rescued from Punjab by the North-East Delhi police within 24 hours.

The police had received a call from one Shashi, a resident of Seelampur, on April 3 afternoon saying that her son, Luv, had been kidnapped by a woman, Munni. She told the police that Munni had stayed in her house as tenant about 10 years ago and had made friends with many people in the locality but had left the place a few years back. She returned about a week ago and stayed with her family.

Around 10 a.m., Munni told Shashi that she was taking Luv and his cousin, Ajay, to the market for shopping. However, she did not return. In the afternoon, Ajay called up from the Inter-State Bus Terminus in Kashmere Gate and told Ms. Shashi that Munni had disappeared with Luv. Subsequently, the police were informed.

During inquiries, the police came to know that Munni had called up somebody at Bhatinda in Punjab from a local phone booth. Teams were immediately sent to Bhatinda. The police managed to establish the identity of the person as Satish (36), a resident of Khaddar Bhandar wali gali, from the records of the cellular service provider there.

A raid was conducted at Satish's house on Monday and he and Munni were arrested. Luv, who had been kept in the same house, was also rescued and reunited with his parents to today.

Interrogation of the accused revealed that Satish, an assistant linesman with electricity board in Bhatinda, and Munni had been neighbours since long. Satish had four daughters and a son, Vishal (8). Vishal apparently died due to some illness in November last year.

Satish then became desperate to have a male child and asked Munni about a fortnight ago if she could bring him such a child. He offered her Rs. 5,000 and also paid Rs. 1,000 as advance.
