An eight-month-old baby girl was kidnapped by two motorcycle-borne persons from Shivam Road in Amberpet on Saturday night.

The child’s mother, Sujana, was on her way to her house in Amberpet in an autorickshaw after seeing a doctor at Tilaknagar when the abductors came from behind, overpowered her and snatched away the baby around 9 p.m. Even before Sujana could react, kidnappers had fled from the spot, said Amberpet Sub-Inspector T. Murali Krishna.

Sujana immediately alerted her relatives, who approached the Amberpet police. The family had not received any ransom call, police said.
