The UT Police have identified the three miscreants who were involved in the kidnapping of a 31-year-old businessman. The gangsters gave outcome to the incident outside a gym in sector 9. Two of them were carrying arms. The gangsters are believed to have mocked the incident before committing the actual crime.
A similar case happened in September 2016, where the accused had also kidnapped the businessman from sector 35 and released him a few hours later after taking a huge amount of Rs. 40 lakh.
The incident happened around 8.10 pm when the victim came out of the gym while talking on the phone. As soon as the victim reached his car, the culprits pointed out the pistol at him and sat in his car. While one of them drove the car, the other two handled the victim on the rear seat.
The culprits threatened the victim and asked to pay a hefty amount of Rs. 2 crores. They drove around the city and tortured the victim to call at his home and ask for money. The victim without letting his cousin know about the kidnapping asked him to bring the money near Elante Mall.
As soon as the victim’s cousin reached the spot, the accused grabbed the money and released the victim. They then drove away the victim’s Mercedes. 20-minutes after the incident, the SUV was found abandoned in Industrial Area, Phase II. The accused are believed to be in their mid-twenties.
