Hyderabad police have launched a hunt for the abductors of Satyam Computer Services’ General Manager Vedula Satyanarayana, who was allegedly kidnapped in front of an elite public school, located in a busy road in Secunderabad on Tuesday morning.

"We received a complaint from Satyanarayana’s wife Kiranmayi between 9.45 and 10 am that her husband has been kidnapped," Gopalpuram Division Assistant Commissioner of Police YV Ramana said.

Police said that Satyanarayana (40) went to drop his two children at their school (Geetanjali Public School) at Secunderabad. He crossed the road with his children while his car was parked on the other side of the road. His driver was also waiting for him in the car.

After sometime when Satyanarayana did not return, the driver called up his (Satyanarayana’s) wife asking ‘where is Saab?’. He told her that Satyanarayana did not return after dropping the kids, police said.

"Satyanarayana’s wife immediately called him on his cell phone and he told her 'I am fine. I am in an urgent meeting' but her enquiries with the office revealed that he was not there," the ACP said.

Kiranmayee got panicky when Satyanarayana stopped responding to calls on the cell phone. Thereafter, she lodged a complaint with Gopalpuram police.

The ACP said that the police have taken up investigation and are making all efforts to trace Satyanarayana. They are making inquiries to find out if he had any dispute/problem with anyone. But, so far, the police have made no breakthrough in the case.
