Kidnapped infant rescued



Meerut: A kidnapped six-month-old baby boy was Wednesday rescued from a cemetery in Kharkhoda area here and a youth arrested in the case.

The infant was rescued when one of the kidnappers was trading him for a ransom of Rs 20 lakh, SP (City), Om Prakash, said.

The accused, identified as Sameer (20), was nabbed and has allegedly confessed to the crime, Prakash said, adding that search is on for his other accomplice.

The baby, who had been taken away by the gun-wielding duo from the house of his father, a businessman, on Monday, was handed over to his family after a medical check up.
