Satyam worried for abducted executive
Satya Vedula, a general manager, was kidnapped in Secunderabad on Tuesday.

New Delhi/Hyderabad: Satyam Computers, India’s leading software company has expressed concern over the kidnapping of its senior official in Secunderabad, Andhra Pradesh, on Tuesday.

Satya Vedula, a general manager, was reportedly kidnapped by four unidentified persons when he was returning home after dropping his school-going son at a bus stop in Secunderabad.

An IANS report said Vedula was kidnapped when he had gone to drop his son to school in Bhopalpuram area. His wife lodged a complaint with police when he did not return.

The four abductors stopped Vedula 's car and bundled him in their van before fleeing from the scene. Vedula rang up his wife and told her that he had been abducted.

Police said no one reported to have witnessed the kidnapping—Vedula himself called his wife to report his kidnapping but did not identify the kidnappers or their motive behind the abduction.

Police suspect that a monetary motive or some land dispute could be behind the crime. The family said it had not received a ransom call yet.

Police started investigations and questioned a few people. "We are investigating the case," DCP M Shiva Prasad told PTI.

Satyam, India's fourth largest software exporter with its headquarters here, said it was concerned about Vedula's safety.

"We have learnt of the kidnapping of our associate, Satya Vedula, from his family today morning. This unfortunate incident happened in Secunderabad area in Hyderabad. We are monitoring the situation with the police and are concerned about his safety. We pray for his speedy reunion with his family," said a statement from Satyam.
