Ghaziabad, Feb 13 (IANS) The Snapdeal woman executive, who was taken to Haryana and managed to return to Ghaziabad, was abducted by someone close to her, police said on Saturday.
Deepti Sarna, 23, was abducted by four criminals in the garb of an auto-rickshaw driver and passengers on Wednesday night while returning home from the Vaishali Metro station. On Friday, she called up her father Narendra Sarna and told him that she managed to flee from her abductors and reached the New Delhi Railway Station.
Superintendent of Police (City) Salman Taj Patil on Saturday said it was established that Deepti was kidnapped, based on the last location of her mobile phone in Morti village.
He, however, said her return to the New Delhi Railway Station was “shrouded in mystery”.
Police teams were working on this aspect, “to ascertain under which circumstances the kidnappers allowed her to go and that too with a return fare of Rs.100”, he said.
On Deepti saying her abductors treated her well, providing her food of her choice, the police officer said: “The courtesy extended to her also raises some questions as to why they provided items of her choice.
“These questions remain to be solved. But primary investigation indicated that someone close to the executive was definitely behind the kidnapping.”
Police said they were looking into the woman executive’s personal life and friends circle.
Top police sources said they were focussing on her former boyfriend Vikram and the current one whom she called when kidnapped.
The woman said the abductors told her that they had high connections in political circles and could arrange a meeting with a top politician.
Her mobile phone, laptop, purse and some other personal articles were taken by the abductors and were yet to be recovered.
