New Delhi: Snapdeal executive Dipti Sarna - who returned on Friday morning almost 36 hours after being kidnapped - has said that her abductors did not harm her and she was treated well.
Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police Dharmendra Singh told that abductors were afraid of being caught following the massive hunt launched by police and vast media coverage of the incident.
The 23-year-old, an executive with the legal wing of e-commerce major Snapdeal, was missing since Wednesday night while she was on her way to home in Ghaziabad.
According to her, she took a shared auto rickshaw to her home at around 7.45 pm from Vaishali Metro station. She, along with other passengers, had to take another autorickshaw as the one in which they were travelling broke down midway near Mohan Nagar.
According to Sarna, soon after boarding the next autorickshaw, the four men forced the only female passenger to get down at knifepoint near Hindon river. Sarna, who had got suspicious about their motives by now, called one of her friends in Bengaluru to tell about the incident when one of the youths snatched her phone and bag. But her friend managed to hear the commotion before the call was disconnected. He was the one who informed Dipti's parents about the incident.
Dipti said that she was taken to a secluded place somewhere in Raj Nagar Extension. According to police, her abductor travelled the whole night, sometimes in a car and sometimes on a bike. They also walked for about 10 kms.
Amid mounting pressure following a massive hunt by the police, the abductors left her on a Delhi-bound train at a suburban railway station on Friday morning. Dipti said that they also gave her some money to reach home. After travelling for sometime, the train reached Narela station where she borrowed phone from a fellow passenger and called her father.
Police said that Dipti has been given time to come out of the trauma before they resume the further investigation into the case.
