Two held for abducting engineer of private firm

A senior engineer with a private firm was allegedly kidnapped, stripped naked, and filmed by two young men in a bid to extort money from him.

The accused, Sahil and Aman, managed to drive away then, but were later arrested.

The 28-year-old engineer lives in his own house in Garhi Harsaru village and had gone to meet his female friend at a hotel on August 8 night when the duo kidnapped him. When the engineer and his friend came out from the hotel around 11 p.m., Sahil, who was known to the woman, and his friend Aman bundled the man in their car and drove away. The duo left the engineer’s car outside the hotel.
