This is one crime that the Noida cops will have a tough time answering on how it happened—a 26-year-old youth was allegedly abducted by a bunch of men from inside a police chowki in Noida.
The incident took place on Friday night when Hemchand Sharma was on his way home in Jaitpur, on the Delhi-Noida border, from Sector 164.
“He saw a group of people get off a Tavera on the expressway and begin beating someone. The victim accidentally fell on Hemchand’s motorcycle and the attackers thought he had come to help their victim,” a police officer said.
“While the initial victim fled in the ensuing melee, the miscreants began beating Hemchand. He tried to flee, but was chased by the men in the SUV and even shot at twice. Luckily, he escaped the bullets. Finding no escape, he drove into a police chowki and cried for help, but to no avail,” the officer said, citing Hemchand’s complaint, which he submitted to the SSP, seeking action against the Sector 39 police station officers under whose jurisdiction the chowki falls.
Hemchand alleged that when he came out on the street shouting for help, the men chasing him kidnapped him and sped towards Ghaziabad and Meerut.
“When the men stopped to buy liquor, I escaped and boarded a bus to Rishikesh from where I informed my family who brought me back,” he said.
Surprisingly, the cops present at the chowki not only refused to help the youth, but they also did not take note of Hemchand’s abandoned motorcycle that stood in the premises for two days. A senior police officer has been told to look into the matter and take action. A probe has started. Hemchand’s statement has been recorded.
