A Member of Parliament’s (MP) brother has been accused of abducting a Maharashtra-based paper merchant from Nabi Karim in central Delhi and keeping him in confinement for 65 days, police said.
The accused, Noor Salem Rana, brother of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Kadir Rana, allegedly abducted Aurangabad -based businessman Manoj Aggarwal when the latter came to Delhi to meet his lawyer on July 7, the police said.
A joint team of Delhi Police and their UP counterparts recently raided Rana Paper Mills and rescued Aggarwal. Rana is absconding, police said.
Two others—Manoj Sharma and Vishal Vishnoi—are also wanted for the crime.
Rana, managing director of Rana Paper Mills, had a dispute with Aggarwal over the payment of Rs 14 lakh.
"When Rana did not get the money from Aggarwal, he planned to abduct him. His wife had complained to police that Aggarwal had gone to Delhi along with his lawyer R.N. Shinde on July 3 but did not return though the lawyer came back after five days,” said Jaspal Singh, DCP (central).
On July 13, Aggarwal's elder brother received a ransom call that he was in the custody of Rana and a case was registered.
