Illicit liquor suppliers kidnap three 'informers'

Three men were kidnapped from outer Delhi’s Kanjhawala by a gang of illicit liquor suppliers on doubt that they informed police about the gang’s activities in the capital.
The kidnappers claimed that they had incurred a loss of Rs 6 lakh and the three men would have to compensate.

When they failed to arrange the money, the trio was beaten up and handed over to police near the Nangloi Metro station. The kidnappers allegedly planted some illicit liquor on them to implicate them.

But police released them after hearing their story, and arrested two of the kidnappers. Police said Deepak Rana, Manoj and Raj Kumar were returning home on a moped when they were kidnapped on Thursday.

“The victims were going towards Ghevra village when they were intercepted by men travelling in a Xylo car. They were abducted at gunpoint,” said Shweta Chauhan, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer).

Deepak told police that they were taken to Haryana’s Bahadurgarh. “The abductors told them that they had suffered a loss of Rs 6 lakh due to them and asked to pay for their loss. The victims, however, claimed that they were not involved,” Chauhan added.

On November 10, policemen of Kanjhawala had arrested Sant Ram and Yogesh with 60 boxes of illicit liquor. It belonged to Rajesh, who was involved in the abduction.

When Deepak, Manoj and Raj Kumar told the kidnappers that they would not be able to arrange the money, they were beaten up and taken to Nangloi. There they were handed over to police, claiming that they were illicit liquor suppliers. The trio, however, claimed innocence and said they were being framed.

On Saturday, police received a tip-off that the accused persons would come to Sultanpuri. A trap was laid and Rajesh and Amrit were arrested. The Xylo car has also been recovered.
