11-Year-Old Boy Rescued After 12-Hour Kidnapping

In a remarkable display of swift action, the police successfully rescued an 11-year-old boy just twelve hours after he was kidnapped from Rajender Nagar in New Delhi. The kidnappers had demanded a ransom of Rs 1.5 crore for his release. Harneet, the victim, was taken by a property dealer named Harpal Singh Sodhi and his associate, who had contacted the family regarding a property deal of the same value.

Delhi police, praised for their efforts, managed to reunite Harneet with his family much sooner than expected. Harpal Singh Sodhi, one of the kidnappers, has been arrested, while Harpreet, the mastermind behind the kidnapping, is still at large. Alok Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Police, revealed that Harpreet had planned the abduction after assuming that the family would be able to pay the ransom. The police received a call reporting the kidnapping at around 6:55 pm on Saturday.

Thanks to information provided by locals and the victim's family, the police were able to trace the location of the kidnapper through the ransom calls. The caller was tracked to Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, where Sodhi was arrested. During interrogation, Sodhi confessed to making the ransom calls, leading to the rescue of Harneet from Rewari railway station, approximately 25 km away. A case has been registered against Harpreet and Sodhi under relevant sections of kidnapping for ransom, and efforts are underway to apprehend Harpreet.
