Crim­i­nal wanted for rape held in kid­nap­ping case

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: North Delhi po­lice ar­rested a crim­i­nal from Me­wat in Haryana who had kid­napped a loan agent for ran­som. The ac­cused, Moah­mmed Shamim (23), is a res­i­dent of Nuh dis­trict in Me­wat.

Shamim is also wanted in a case of kid­nap­ping and gang rape reg­is­tered at Pun­hana dis­trict in Me­wat.

His as­so­ciates Ha­roon, Mazid and Sanir would call busi­ness­men and loan com­mis­sion agents of NCR on some pre­text through an ap­pli­ca­tion, ask­ing for de­tails of avail­able of­fers and deals. When the agent would reach their ad­dress to ex­plain the modal­i­ties, the crim­i­nals would kid­nap them and ask for ran­som.

The case in which Shamim has been ar­rested now had taken place on Septem­ber 3. A Delhi-based loan com­mis­sion agent, who re­sides in Par­tap Na­gar, was kid­napped from Gur­gaon where he was called by the ac­cused for a loan query.

Af­ter rob­bing the vic­tim, the ac­cused called the vic­tim’s fam­ily mem­bers and de­manded a ran­som of Rs 10 lakh. How­ever, the fam­ily in­formed them that they had no money. The ran­som was sub­se­quently brought down to Rs 50,000.

The man’s wife de­posited Rs 15,000 in an ac­count, which was with­drawn by the ac­cused from an ATM in Me­wat. Just af­ter with­draw­ing the money, the vic­tim was re­leased.

The fam­ily later ap­proached the cops. A case was reg­is­tered and a team led by in­spec­tor Su­nil Ku­mar was formed.

“On the ba­sis of tech­ni­cal anal­y­sis of the sus­pects and the CCTV footage, in­form­ers were de­ployed to gather in­tel­li­gence about the pos­si­ble hide­outs of mem­bers of the gang in­volved in this case,” said Monika Bhard­waj, DCP (north).

Af­ter a month, the cops got some leads fol­low­ing which a raid was con­ducted in Jaipur, Ra­jasthan and the ac­cused was ar­rested.
