A 29-year-old Gurgaon-based finance firm executive, who went missing five days ago while returning home from office, dramatically resurfaced on Monday.
Delhi Police officials are now trying to ascertain whether he was abducted or he himself went somewhere. The missing man called his family on his own to inform that he was standing outside a temple in Gurgaon.
Varun Vohra, a resident of Uttam Nagar, was untraceable since June 27. Vohra’s family members filed a missing complaint and claimed that he could not be reached on his cellphone.
A kidnapping case was registered at the Uttam Nagar police station after it was learnt that transactions were carried out using Vohra’s ATM card.
Police suspected that he was abducted by robbers who rob people after drugging them in shared auto-rickshaws.
DCP (southwest), Surender Kumar, took to Twitter and sought help from public and adjoining states police to trace Vohra. He tweeted Vohra’s details and photographs and shared the contact number of the SHO of the Uttam Nagar police station for sharing information about the missing man. However, the police failed to trace Vohra.
On Monday, Vohra’s parents received a call from him. He told them that he was standing outside Sheetla Mata Mandir in Gurgaon. They brought him home and informed the police.
Vohra has not been able to give a clear recollection of the events that unfolded over the last few days. He told police that he had boarded a shared cab from Gurgaon around 10 pm on June 27.
“When he reached Pochanpur Colony in Dwarka, the men sitting in the cab overpowered him and threatened him. They then kidnapped him and made him roam around with them in different places,” said a police officer.
Vohra does not recall the places he was taken to or the ATMs where he was made to withdraw money by the alleged kidnappers. He told the police that he has not slept properly in the last few days and does not recall where he was taken.
However, he has alleged that Rs 80,000 were withdrawn from various ATMs by the kidnappers, numbering three to four men, who also took away his cellphone before dumping him at the temple, the officer said.
