Seven-year-old Devabrata Sahu, who was kidnapped from Jeedimetla on Wednesday, was rescued from a lodge in Yadagirigutta by its workers on Thursday.

The lodge workers grew suspicious when two men checked into a room there along with the boy. “We already learnt about the boy's kidnap through media. We questioned the two men as to who the boy with them was,” they told the police. As the duo's explanation was not satisfactory, they called in the local police. By the time, the abductors fled the place. The boy was handed over to the police who sent him to his parents' house in Jeedimetla.
