A Delhi-based auto driver’s presence of mind and courage foiled a kidnapping attempt. The auto driver successfully obstructed the abductor’s car on the road where the kidnapping victim managed to overpower one of the abductors while the others fled the scene. The high-octane drama was reported from Delhi’s Kalkaji area and occurred earlier on Sunday. The courageous auto driver who foiled the abduction attempt was identified as Vikram, while the accused were identified as Anuradha alias Preeti and Iqrar Ali.
According to reports, Anuradha and Iqrar had hatched a plot to kidnap Javed and extort money from him. Anuradha and Javed had been connected on WhatsApp and she had tried to kidnap him with his associates twice before. However, as Javed never showed up to meet Anuradha as per their plans, the accused remained unsuccessful.
On Sunday, when Javed finally came to meet Anuradha, her associates pushed him in the car and tried to flee as soon as possible. An agitated Javed raised an alarm inside the car, and caught the attention of an auto driver, Vikram.
Vikram decided to not waste a single moment, and chased the accused’s car, and then obstructed it near a petrol pump. Somehow, Javed managed to overpower Anuradha, and her associates fled the scene.
Anuradha was later arrested and her associates are on the run.
