In yet another case of kidnap for ransom, two non-local employees were released by their captors on two separate incidents after rescue missions carried out by Dimapur Police. SDPO Dimapur Shouka disclosed that an employee of Essar petrol pump located at Walford area was abducted on February 18 at around 11.30 am by four unidentified persons at Burma Camp area while on his way home for lunch. The victim was taken away along with his bike to an undisclosed location. Later , the abductors called the victim’s relatives and demanded a sum of Rs 10 lakhs which later scaled down to Rs 50,000 after negotiation. Police got wind of the incident from some reliable sources and laid a trap at Purana Bazar . The next day, one of the abductors later identified as Daniel Swu(26) was caught by police when he had gone to collect the ransom after a long chase. Based on the locations shown by the mobile tower, another police party raided some villages at Kughoboto area. In the process, the abductors feeling the intense pressure released the victim within the vicinity of the village who was later picked up the police. On questioning, the victim expressed inability to pinpoint the exact location as he was blindfolded all the time. Later on, the motor cycle of the victim was handed over to the Dimapur Gorkha Union on February 22 by an ‘official’ of a certain underground faction ‘on good faith’. Police sources added that the identities of the other abductors have already been established and investigations were still on to apprehend them. In the second incident, an employee of a hardware store located at Naharbari was abducted by unidentified miscreants on February 15 around 7.30 pm as he was closing the store. The abductors had called up the victim’s family and demanded a sum of Rs 1 crore as ransom money. However, the police came to know about the incident and based on the calls recorded, the involvement of a non-local person was also established. Immediately, a rescue mission launched and while zeroing down on the abductors, whose identities were by now already established, the victim was released without any harm or exchange of money on February 19. Police sources added that the abductors were from a certain faction and investigations on to arrest those involved.
