Father-son arrested for abduction, claim they were duped



Rewari: Haryana Police have arrested a father-son duo in Jaipur for abduction of a youth, who the accused alleged had taken Rs 2.70 lakh from them on a false promise of a job in the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.

Rahul Yadav was produced in a local court on Wednesday which remanded him in police custody for two days while his father Rajender was sent to judicial custody.

The duo, both residents of Mahendergarh district, were arrested for alleged abduction of Vijay Kumar, son of Karambir Singh of Surakhpur village, near Kosli on April 18.

During interrogation, Rahul alleged that Vijay had taken Rs 2.70 lakh from him by promising to get him a job as a ticket collector in the Delhi Metro.

But when he failed to do so, Rahul said he sought his money back but Vijay adopted dilly-dallying tactics following which he got a case of cheating, criminal breach of trust, forgery and criminal conspiracy registered against him and his accomplices at a police station in Jaipur city on April 23.

To avenge this, he claimed, Karambir implicated them in a false cause of abduction.
