The six-year-old boy, kidnapped four days back while going to school, was rescued this evening from Bihar's Saran district and four persons were arrested in this connection, police said.

Shresth Sanjay (Shreya), student of class one, was rescued from a flat at Baniapur.

Acting on a tip-off, a police team from Patna raided the flat and safely rescued the boy, ADG (headquarters) Neelmani said, adding four persons were also arrested during the raid.

The boy, son of a private firm officer Sanjay Srivastava, was being brought to Patna, she said.

Preliminary investigation indicated land dispute behind the incident, she added.

The rescue came a day after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar expressed displeasure as the boy remained untraced and opposition parties sought to make it a major issue.

Shreya was kidnapped at gunpoint on Monday by three motorcycle-borne youths when he was on his way to Christ Church school from his residence at Kankerbagh colony.

The trio intercepted a car, carrying him and other students, and took away the boy.
