Delhi: Youth fakes his own abduction to extort money from family

New Delhi: A 22-year-old youth has been arrested for allegedly faking his own kidnapping so that he could squeeze money out of his family. According to the police, Sagar Kumar, a resident of Krishan Vihar worked as a salesman in a private company in Delhi.

On September 6, a resident of Krishan Vihar Satish Kumar registered a complaint stating that his brother Sagar Kumar (the arrested person) had gone to give money to their sister in Modinagar in Uttar Pradesh and was kidnapped. He had not returned home after paying the ransom. All his three mobile phones were switched off and the family was not able to contact him.

On September 4, they had received a call from his brother's mobile phone where he was heard crying to be saved as he was abducted by 4-5 persons. Sagar also told his family that he was blindfolded and all his money was taken away along with his mobile phones and ATM Card.

He said his abductors have threatened him to call his family and wanted to have Rs 2 lakh deposited in his SBI account, failing which he would be killed. The terrified family members then deposited Rs 2 lakh in his account on September 5.

However, the family again received a call on September 6 from Sagar's mobile that the abductors had sliced his hand. A case was registered and investigation was taken up. A police team analysed the call details of the complaint and sources were deployed.

"We came to know that the kidnapped youth was seen in Haridwar. A thorough search of the hotels was conducted but the accused was not found. A trap was then laid at all the ATM's in Haridwar to catch Sagar. He was finally nabbed on September 9 by the police, after which he confessed to have concocted his own kidnapping," said DCP (Outer) Vikramjit Singh. The police recovered Rs one lakh fifteen thousand from his hotel room.
