Two days on when Amanadeep Singh Sodhi, son of Ravinder Singh Sodhi, a scribe, was abducted by some unidentified kidnappers, the Gurdaspur police are yet searching for a lead. Amanadeep went missing on Thursday morning; had gone for tuition, but did not return home.

The victim's family, in the meantime, claimed to have received a call demanding a ransom of rs 50 lakh.After tracing mobile number of the unidentified caller, police succeeded in tracing the shop from where the SIM was bought. However, their effort went in vain when the buyer of the SIM turned out to be fake.

On Saturday, police remained busy verifying calls made and received by the boy, while a CCTV camera installed outside a bank recorded the picture of the boy near Dinanagar bus stand at around 10am, after which he went missing.

Though police have refused to divulge details of their drive, the family has expressed their satisfaction over their efforts. We are praying to almighty for the safe return of our son, said the parents.

SSP Gurdaspur Gurpreet Singh Toor claimed that police were making all out effort to trace the boy and many teams were in action.

"We hope a lead soon as we are not leaving any stone unturned to get the boy back home safe," he concluded.
