A police search team was able to rescue the victim of a kidnapping in Garo Hills today but they are still on the lookout for the suspected abductors, who are on the run.
A complaint was received in the morning that one fishmonger, Sayful Islam, of Bogular Bhita, under Tikrikilla Police Station, was missing since yesterday morning after he travelled on his motorbike to deliver fish for a wedding party.
Today, an unknown person used the victim’s phone to demand Rs 15 lakh in ransom to be paid within three days from the family.
However, the police were contacted and thanks to their efforts were able to locate the victim in Bandangre. The kidnappers abandoned the victim and fled on the approach of the police.
