An abducted Patna school student returned home Friday after 18 days in the custody of abductors.

Mayank, aged about 12, was abducted Feb 28. He returned home Friday morning to the relief and surprise of his family.

Mayank told police that three people had abducted him when he was playing in a park near his house. He said he was taken to Kerala by his abductors, and he saw more children there.

The state government had early this month stated that as many as 102 cases of kidnappings were registered in the last three months in the state, with 31 in Patna district alone.
