No trace of Reliance official abducted in PatnaDecember 2nd, 2008 - 1:07 pm ICT by IANS
Patna, Dec 2 (IANS) A Reliance Communications employee who was abducted from here last week is still untraceable and the family has not received any call for ransom, police said Tuesday. Deepak Kumar, a deputy general manager with Reliance India Mobile, was kidnapped Friday night from Patna’s Shrikrishna Puri area.
“We have not received a ransom call from the abductors till date and this is giving us sleepless nights,” said Kumar’s father P.N. Singh, who is a state vigilance bureau official.
Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Amit Kumar said that the police was working to trace him.
“We are on the job to recover him,” he said.
Kumar’s family had lodged a case of kidnapping Saturday night, nearly 24 hours after the 30-year-old failed to return home. His car was found abandoned Saturday night near the Kotwali police station.
Kumar had Friday night told his wife Rekha Devi that he would return home late as he had to meet a contractor. But when he did not return and his mobile phone appeared to be switched off, the family began looking for him before approaching the police.
