Noida, March 1 (IANS) In a case straight out of a Bollywood script, a man kidnapped a couple’s one-year-old child, claiming the baby was born out of his relationship with the mother. The police Sunday said the man has been arrested.
The police registered a criminal case Saturday on a complaint by Arun Yadav, who alleged that his neighbour Anil Kumar had abducted his child.
In his complaint, Yadav said Kumar Saturday barged into his house and claimed that he was the biological father of the child. Kumar claimed that he had an affair with Yadav’s wife and the child was born out of it.
“A police team raided Kumar’s suspected hideouts in Bhawana area of Delhi. But he had escaped with the child. The police nabbed Kumar by tapping his mobile phone. He was held at Jhundpura bus station in Noida,” said Pramesh Shukla, who heads the sector-20 police station.
“During interrogation, the accused confessed that he had abducted the child as he is its biological father. He claimed that the son was born out of his illicit relationship with the mother of the child. We will request the court to conduct a DNA test of the accused and the child,” he said.
“Kumar has been remanded to 15 days of judicial custody by a court and the child has been handed over to his mother,” the official added.
