Sit-in lifted in Ghaziabad after police intervention

Ghaziabad, Feb 12 (IANS) The enraged Ghaziabad residents lifted a sit-in from outside a police office which blocked traffic on Hapur road here after the SP City assured of speeding up the recovery process of a kidnapped woman engineer.

A 23-year-old woman engineer, working in the IT department of online shopping website Snapdeal, was abducted, police said on Thursday. Residents protested the crime, blocking roads and holding the sit-in.

Deepti Sarna, who works at the company’s Gurgaon office, failed to return home in Kavi Nagar area of Ghaziabad on Wednesday night.

She usually took the Delhi Metro up to Vaishali station in Ghaziabad, and from there, she took an auto-rickshaw to her house, located around 8-km from the station.

On Wednesday night, she left the Metro station around 8.30 p.m. and took a “shared” auto-rickshaw along with three other passengers, including a woman.

After getting into the vehicle, she telephoned her father Narendra Sarna.

After travelling a distance of around 3-4 km, the woman co-passenger was reportedly forced to get down.

Sensing danger, Deepti called her father again and said the auto-rickshaw was taking her in a wrong direction. Her mobile phone then went switched off.

Her father along with some political leaders contacted police and filed a complaint.

Superintendent of Police (City) Salman Taj Patil said a case was registered and police launched a combing operation in the area, but nothing was found.
