Three-year-old Promise, an American Bully, was abducted from outside Omaxe Forest Spa condominium in Sector 93B of Noida.

A Noida based businessman has announced a cash reward of Rs50, 000 to anyone who finds his pet — an American Bully dog — that was allegedly abducted by four men from outside his Omaxe Forest Spa condominium in Sector 93-B on Wednesday.

Chintan Tewari has filed a complaint at Phase-2 police station and the police have swung into action to trace the three-year-old dog that has been missing since Wednesday evening. Tewari said that his dog, named Promise, was being taken for a walk by his 30-year-old domestic help outside the upscale society when the incident took place.

The owner has promised to reward the person who finds his pet with Rs50,000. The dog was wearing a blue jacket and a green-black harness when it was abducted.

He said that the four men, in their 20s, got down from a white Toyota Corolla, held the domestic help at knifepoint and fled with the dog. The dog was wearing a blue jacket and a green-black harness, he said.

Shawez Khan, the station house officer, Phase-2 police station, said,“We have received the complaint, but no case has been registered. On the basis of the CCTV footage and account of the complainant, steps are being taken. We are meeting people and trying to get the dog rescued.”

Talking to Hindustan Times, Tewari said that his domestic help was momentarily scared to raise an alarm. “In the CCTV footage, we could not see the registration number of the car. But it was a Toyota Corolla. The four men were well dressed and went away with the dog.”

Tewari on Friday got posters pasted at various locations in Sector 93-B. The poster was shared by many people on WhatsApp also. The poster reads: “Drop him behind Forest Spa. The reward will be Rs50,000.” It also reads that the returnee will not be asked questions or his/her identity.

As the car arrived at the scene of the crime a few minutes before the abduction took place, police suspect they were waiting for the target.

“We got 100 posters printed and pasted them in public spaces. These posters are on social media as well. The phone number is mentioned on the poster. Any person who will bring back can contact me and take the cash. I want my dog back and do not even want to know the person’s identity,” Tewari said.
