Adobe India CEO Naresh Gupta on Tuesday appealed to the kidnappers of his three-year-old son Anant Gupta to release the boy, saying he had done no wrong to anyone.

Gupta also asked the media not to report the incident. “His life is in danger. We do not suspect anyone. Please do not report the incident. The more you report it, the more his kidnappers would know about it. My son has not done anyone any wrong. Please return him,” he said.

The police said investigations were on but refused to divulge details. “We have kept all options open and are exploring all angles,” said NP Singh, Inspector General, Meerut.

Investigators said requesting anonymity that the family had received two phone calls from the kidnappers. The first call was apparently received around 1:30 am and the second one was after a couple of hours. They now believe the kidnappers were not first-timers, as suspected initially.

Two armed men on a motorcycle snatched Anant from outside his house in Noida as he waited for his school bus. He was with the family’s domestic help.
