No trace of abducted Chhattisgarh trader yetMarch 20th, 2009 - 11:26 pm ICT by IANS
Raipur, March 20 (IANS) The state police are yet to find trader Sunil Waswani, who was abducted Thursday by unidentified persons near Chhattisgarh Chief Minister’s official residence, despite stepping up search operations.
Police suspect that the trader was abducted purely for ransom purposes but Waswani’s family has not received any ransom call by Friday evening. The police are, however, surprised how the abuctors managed to take away Waswani from a high security area.
“The abductors have challenged the police by taking away the youth from a high security area. All the police stations have been alerted and checking has been intensified across Raipur district though we believe that kidnappers will soon contact the family for ransom,” Amit Kumar, Raipur district superintendent of police, told reporters.
