New Delhi: In a shocking incident, a 91-year-old man was allegedly kidnapped by his domestic help in South Delhi’s Greater Kailash 2 area. The accused abducted the victim after locking him inside a refrigerator. Delhi police later recovered his body and arrested the accused.
The victim, identified as Krishna Khosla, has been living with his wife in their residence in GK 2. Kishan, who belongs to Bihar has been employed by the couple for over year.
The incident took place on Saturday night when the servant Kishan, reportedly unhappy with the conduct of Khosla, knocked him unconscious and put him inside the fridge and took him away.
