A car-borne gang which had kidnapped the boy on Thursday evening abandoned the minor and the vehicle a few hours later after chased by the police.

The boy was rescued and the vehicle confiscated. Video grabs generated from the surveillance cameras enabled the police in determining the colour of the vehicle and its model based on which the action by the police began to apprehend the kidnappers and to rescue the boy.
