The whole incident, which took place on Tuesday, was captured on CCTV cameras. As per the police, it was the girl’s 27-year-old uncle who planned the kidnapping of the minor girl to extort money from her parents. Upender, a resident of Krishna Nagar, had planned to abduct his niece in order to extort around Rs 30 to 35 lakh from his brother.
However, his plan failed and he was arrested on Wednesday from Krishan Nagar, a senior police officer said.
The video of the incident which has gone viral on social media shows the woman pulling her daughter from the clutches of the abductors. She pushes the motorcycle rider and the two-wheeler falls on the ground, following which the pillion rider starts running. Later, the rider speeds away the two-wheeler.
The incident happened when the accused came to the house of the victim around 4 pm and asked for water. When the mother of the girl went inside to bring the water, they tried to abduct the minor. However, the woman saw it and successfully managed to free her daughter.
Meanwhile, the woman’s neighbours also stepped in to nab the kidnappers as one of them started to run after the accused persons while another neighbour parked his scooter in the middle of the road to block their way. However, both the accused managed to escape but left their bikes in a hurry on the spot.
Delhi Police found that the registration number of the bike was fake but still managed to track its owner Dheeraj, who confessed that the child’s uncle, Upendra was the mastermind.
During interrogation, Upender said he was in debt and planned to extort money from his brother who owns a garment store in Gandhi Nagar, police said, adding that they are trying to nab the absconding accused.
