Ghaziabad: Five days after she was abducted and later mysteriously freed, it is still unclear who seized young executive Deepti Sarna and why. Police say someone close to her is to blame for the crime.
Investigators have established that the 23-year-old was blindfolded from Raj Nagar Extension area, said Superintendent of Police Salman Taj Patil. Mystery still surrounds her dramatic return.
Police are trying to ascertain under which circumstances the kidnappers allowed her to go, that too after giving her Rs.100. The courtesy extended to her during captivity seems to be puzzling police.
“We will solve this mystery soon,” Patil said, referring to the abduction saga.
Earlier, police indicated that they were examining the role of a former as well as the present boyfriend.
The woman’s father said Senior Superintendent of Police Dharmendra Yadav personally questioned his daughter on Saturday for about an hour.
Police say the executive managed to flee from her captors in Haryana’s Panipat town and contacted her father from a passer-by’s mobile phone.
After her return on Friday, she told police that she was provided food of her choice.
During the 36 hours with them, they transported her on a motorcycle, a car and on foot. She was kept in a sugarcane field also for some time.
On Friday, she was left on a railway platform from where she took a train going to Delhi. She then contacted her father.
On Wednesday night, Sarna left the Vaishali Metro Station in Ghaziabad at 8.30 p.m. and took a ‘shared’ auto-rickshaw with three other passengers, including a woman. She was then kidnapped by the men in the auto-rickshaw who were posing as passengers.
