New Delhi, April 7 (IANS) A woman and her accomplice have been arrested here for allegedly abducting a four-year-old boy with an intent to sell him, the police said Monday. Prem alias Kanta, 40, and Bobby Francis, 25, were arrested Sunday when sleuths of Delhi Police swooped down at their Mangolpuri house, where they had held the boy, Shiva, in captivity.
The police said the raid was organised after a tip-off that a woman and a few other people had hidden a boy and were looking for a customer to sell him off for considerable amount.
“Kanta, in her interrogation, disclosed that she kidnapped the boy last month near his home in Prasad Nagar. She said she knew the family for the past 14-15 years and had good relations with them,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer Delhi) Sagar Preet Hooda.
“We are trying to verify if they (the woman-accomplice duo) had sold any children in past,” he added.
