Woman abducted from capital, rescued within hours!
A young woman returning home from work was chased and abducted in the capital by five youths, including two college students, after a verbal duel in the early hours today but was dramatically rescued after a long chase by police from neighbouring Faridabad.
The woman, who works at a mall in Gurgaon, was returning home along with a colleague and two relatives when the youths intercepted their car near Ghitorni Metro Station and abducted her after beating her friends and the cab driver.
It was the cab driver's alertness that helped police rescue the woman as he managed to inform police about the abduction, Chhaya Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South), said.
The arrested have been identified as Kartar Singh (22), a BSc final year student who also runs a play school in partnership with his sister, and Pramod Singh (23), a final year BBA student.
Their three friends Ravish Nagar, Deepak and Arun are absconding.
"The incident leading to the abduction came after a party in Faridabad to celebrate Kartar buying a new SUV. They consumed liquor and then proceeded to Gurgaon. They tried to gain entry into a night club in Gurgaon but were not allowed.
"Subsequently, they went to the mall where they spotted the victim and others. They had a verbal altercation with the victim."
As the women left the mall, the youths chased them and intercepted near Ghitorni.
They abducted one of the girls and fled from the spot towards Faridabad," Sharma said.
Police received a call at around 3.30 am and immediately, night patrolling parties and picket staff were alerted and intensive checking of vehicles began.
According to the victim, she along with her and two of their relatives were returning home after the mall was closed at two am. They hired a private cab to go home.
"The cab they were travelling in was intercepted and as soon as the driver stopped the vehicle, the youths dragged the victim into their SUV. When the complainant and other girls resisted, they beat them up," Sharma said.
