The Gurdaspur Police got success to rescue a boy who was kidnapped on January 18 while going to school. A ten year old boy Sahil was on his way to school on the College road when two motor cycle-borne youths kidnapped him around 9 a.m. However the Police acting in a professional manner rescued him within 6 hours of kidnapping. All the four kidnappers were arrested by the police on the tip off given by a school teacher. Interestingly the teacher saw the boy with the kidnappers however she did not raise alarm as the boy was seen comfortable with the culprits who were distantly related with the family. This was a case of kidnapping for ransom.
When police sounded a red alert in the area, on noticing policemen at a checkpoint, the kidnappers escaped after leaving the boy and abandoning their motor cycle at a shop near Pandori Mahantan. However two of them were nabbed on the spot with the help of the community. Two persons of the community chased the culprits with the police and help to nab other two culprits also.
The police also took help from the service provider of the cell phone company to trace the identity and location of the offenders. Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh, SSP Gurdaspur himself led the operation. SP Detective Parambir Singh Parmar, DSP Shailender Singh, DSP Harvinder Singh, Inspector Paramjit Singh and other Police officers alongwith members of the community were awarded with commendation certificates for actively participating in the operation.
