NEW DELHI: A 24-year-old woman work­ing with Snapdeal was ab­ducted in an au­torick­shaw in Ghazi­abad on Wed­nes­day night and was yet to be traced a full day later, de­spite the po­lice reg­is­ter­ing a case and launch­ing a mas­sive hunt al­most im­me­di­ately.

Dipti Sarna was taken even as she was on the phone with a friend and her father. Nivrat Sharma, a friend and for­mer col­league now liv­ing in Ban­ga­lore, told the po­lice he heard her scream and then go silent even as her mo­bile phone stayed on. He im­me­di­ately alerted her father, Naren­dra Sarna, who got in touch with the po­lice.

A crowd of 400-500 had joined her fam­ily — de­mand­ing her re­cov­ery — in block­ing the Ghazi­abad-Ha­pur road lead­ing to na­tional high­way 24 when this pa­per went to bed Thurs­day night. Snapdeal reached out to peo­ple for in­for­ma­tion and help, launch­ing the hash­tag #HelpFindDipti.

Dipti, an ex­ec­u­tive with the e-com­merce ma­jor’s le­gal depart­ment since April, left her of­fice in Gur­gaon at 5.30pm Wed­nes­day and took an of­fice shut­tle to the near­est Metro sta­tion, a com­pany spokesper­son said.

She was seen ex­it­ing the Vaishali Metro sta­tion in Ghazi­abad at 7.42pm and head­ing to­wards a nearby auto stand, po­lice said af­ter scour­ing CCTV footage.
