A eight-year-old boy from Dombivali who was abducted by two teenagers including his uncle, for a ransom of Rs one crore, was rescued by the cops from a godown in Thane.
Prince Rajendra Kumar Jain (8), the son of a marble businessman was kidnapped by uncle Vishal Puran Jain (19) and his friend Krishnakumar Guruswamy Naidu (15), on Thursday, from the front of his residence and kept in captivity for two days in a Dombivali godown, police said. The minor, a Class II student, who was rescued on Sunday, was lured by the duo, who offered him choclates and later took the boy to an isolated place, Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Prashant Burde told newsmen Sunday evening.
Two days later, the accused, who wanted to open a cyber cafe from the money, made nearly a dozen ransom calls to the boy's father Rajkumar Jain on Saturday and demanded the amount, he said. When Rajkumar demanded to hear his son's voice, the recorded voice of Prince, who parroted the ransom demand by the culprits was played to him, police said.
The final call came after midnight in the early hours of Sunday after which both the parties decided to meet near Dwarka hotel to collect the money bag, they said.
