Russian software tycoon`s son freed: Police
Moscow: Police in Moscow say they have freed son of Russian software tycoon Yevgeny Kaspersky who was kidnapped Tuesday.
Kaspersky, CEO of global digital security company Kaspersky Labs, is estimated to be the 125th richest man in Russia with a $0.8 billion fortune, RIA Novosti reported.
His son, Ivan Kaspersky, 20, was abducted while on his way to a firm where he was working as a computer programmer.
"The Moscow police together with the Federal Security Service and riot police have recovered Kaspersky`s son in the Moscow region," police spokesman Viktor Biryukov said Sunday in comments carried by state news channel Rossiya 24.
Five people were arrested in the raid.
The 20-year-old is said to be in good health.
Biryukov, however, denied reports that a ransom was paid.
Russian news website lifenews.ru said the kidnappers demanded 3 million euros ($4.3 million) for Ivan`s safe return.
