New Delhi: A kidnapped businessman was rescued on Monday and the abductors, including an ex-employee, arrested, police said.

Manish Kumar, 23, and his accomplice, Satnam Singh, 44, kidnapped Saurabh Gupta, 28, while he was returning home from his showroom – of a chain store of electronics – in west Delhi’s Paschim Vihar on Saturday, police said.

On December 10, the victim’s father realised his son did not return home last night. Soon, he got a ransom call of Rs 5 crore, after which he informed police.

“Gupta, a resident of Karampura, went to his showroom in Paschim Vihar on Saturday. At night, when he left for home in his car, Kumar and Singh kidnapped him at gun point, and drugged him,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police M.N. Tiwari.

They then drove to Haryana’s Bahadurgarh to make the ransom call so as to mislead police about their location, he said.

“Gupta was rescued and the kidnappers arrested today (Monday) from a house in Nilothi Extension after a police team conducted a door-to-door survey of over 250 houses,” he said, adding that police zeroed in on the area as they were still tracking the phone from which the ransom call had been made.

“During interrogation, Kumar told police that they were in urgent need of money and hence planned the kidnapping. They also rented a room to keep their hostage,” the officer said.

The two accused are residents of Tilak Nagar area of west Delhi. Kumar had five years ago worked in the victim’s Karol Bagh’s shop.
