An eight year old boy was kidnapped by a woman at Haatpipliya town in Dewas district, more than 150 kilometers south west of Bhopal, on Friday after the boy’s uncle allegedly rejected the girl’s advances, said police.

The boy’s uncle happens to be a police personnel in Chhattisgarh posted at Sukma at present.

Fortunately, the principal of the school where the boy studies got a whiff of the kidnapping and he informed the boy’s parents who chased the woman and rescued the boy. The woman and another person have been arrested by Dewas police.

BD Beera, town inspector of police at Haatpipliya town said Rajani Gond, 23, kidnapped Shailendra Singh to take revenge on his uncle Yashwant Singh.

“Gond told police during interrogation that she came in contact with Yashwant through Facebook. They later exchanged their mobile numbers and started talking to each other. Gond claimed that Yashwant also proposed to her but for the past one month, he stopped talking to her,” said Beera.

“On Friday, Gond with an accomplice Rajesh Dubey went to Education Spark Convent School at Haatpipliya town, where Shailendra studies. They told the teachers that they were relatives of Shailendra and came to pick the boy on a bike. Teachers allowed them to take the boy with them but the principal of the school Ajay Pathak saw that the bike was going in a wrong direction, away from where the boy stayed. Pathak informed Shailendra’s family members who caught the kidnappers with the help of villagers,” said police.

The villagers also beat them up and handed them over to the police. Police are investigating the matter.
