In panic, ab­duc­tors throw scream­ing woman off car

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY - @times­group.com

New Delhi: This tale has con­spir­acy the­o­ries writ­ten all over it. A 28-year-old woman was ab­ducted in a white Maruti Swift Dzire from out­side a pri­vate school in Sec­tor 16 of Dwarka on Fri­day evening. Even as po­lice reached the crime spot to chase the ab­duc­tors, the woman was thrown out of the mov­ing car as she con­tin­ued to shout for help.

Hours later, when the kid­nap­pers, iden­ti­fied as Sa­bal Ku­mar Singh (34) and Ikra­mud­deen (25), were ar­rested from Dad­sia vil­lage in Faridabad, the en­tire in­ci­dent be­gan to un­fold.

The woman, who lives in a hous­ing so­ci­ety in Dwarka, was con­tacted on phone by Singh about two weeks ago in which he in­tro­duced him­self as the cus­tomer care rep­re­sen­ta­tive of her mo­bile network com­pany and of­fered her a bet­ter talk­time plan.

When Singh started flirt­ing with her, she dis­con­nec- ted the call. How­ever, he didn’t give up and in­ten­si­fied his pur­suit. Sit­ting in his house in Faridabad, he started call­ing her from mul­ti­ple numbers and sex­ting her on What­sApp. He kept in­sist­ing that she meet him.

When the woman’s at­tempts to stop Singh failed, she shared her or­deal with her hus­band. The cou­ple then hatched a plan with a friend to call the ha­rasser to Dwarka and nab him.

The next time Singh called, the woman asked him to come to Dwarka in the evening. Singh picked up his fa­ther’s Swift Dzire and asked his friend, Ikra­mud­deen, to join him in his quest. Af­ter drop­ping a woman from their vil­lage in south Delhi, the two drove to­wards Dwarka.

Mean­while, the woman came to the des­ig­nated meet­ing point with her hus­band on a scooty with their friend closely fol­lowed them in his WagonR. Their plan went awry as Singh quickly pulled the woman in­side his ve­hi­cle and drove away. The shocked hus­band started fol­low­ing the car even as the woman con­tin­ued to shout for help. The ab­duc­tors pan­icked and ul­ti­mately slowed down the car and threw her out be­fore speed­ing away.

The vic­tim’s hus­band, in the mean­time, in­formed the PCR and a unit soon reached the spot. DCP (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse said that a team un­der the su­per­vi­sion of ACP (Dwarka) Ra­jen­der Singh jot­ted down the de­tails from the cou­ple and started the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

They were pro­vided the phone numbers used by Singh and a part of the num­ber­plate of the car (HR 51 XX XX63). A team went to Dad­sia vil­lage at night and ze­roed in on the ac­cused us­ing the vot­ers’ list and ar­rested them. It was found that Singh, who pro­vides trac­tors on hire, had been ha­rass­ing sev­eral women us­ing this tac­tic. His mo­bile phones are be­ing scanned for more de­tails.
