A team of Delhi Police arrested Data Ram, a resident of Punjabi Basti near Anand Parbat in central Delhi, from Kanpur railway station and recovered the child, the daughter of his friend and neighbour Ashok.

Data Ram had demanded a ransom of Rs.1 lakh from the girl’s parents, said a police official.
