New Delhi, Oct 26: Three people, including a juvenile, were arrested for kidnapping a three-year-old child, police said Friday. The child has been rescued.
Pankaj Bhagat, 23, his friend Rajesh Rishi, 34, and a juvenile were arrested from Madhepura in Bihar Thursday for kidnapping the child, Krishan, on Oct 13 from north Delhi’s Azadpur area.
During interrogation, Pankaj, a distant relative of child’s father Ghanshyam, revealed that he kidnapped the boy because of his jealousy with Ghanshyam’s business.
“Pankaj borrowed Rs.20,000 from Ghanshyam, who wanted the money back. Pankaj was not in a position to repay it. As he was already jealous of Ghanshyam’s business, he planned to kidnap the boy,” said Additional Commissioner of Police V. Renganathan.
“Pankaj had asked Ghanshyam for Rs.10 lakh as ransom,” said the officer.
