Dipti Sarna, the 24-year-old Snapdeal executive, on Sunday took a police team through the route her abductors took despite the fact that she was blindfolded and driven through some isolated spots in pitch-dark.
Sarna was abducted by four men in a shared auto Wednesday from near the Vaishali Metro station. However, she returned home unharmed on Friday.
Sarna took the police to stretches near the Hindon river and on the isolated outskirts of the village Morti -- the point where she was last located through her phone.
The police team took Dipti in a car driven by one of her family members. From her house in Kavi Nagar, the car first stopped near the Hindon turn towards the Raj Nagar Extension Road where she told police that she was overpowered by the four men and blindfolded by her stole.
She was then driven 6-7 km on the road towards the interior parts of village Morti. The village is dimly-lit and has dusty non metalled roads. Here, Dipti pointed out the second point, the exact location where police went in her search a day after she was abducted.
Police suspect that from Morti the four men drove her in a car towards Chandi Nagar, in Baghpat.
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Dharmendra Singh said that Sarna was not blindfolded for the entire stretch and it is possible that she could have seen some places where the abductors took her. It looked improbable since Sarna had been blindfolded, and was being driven in pitch dark. “She saw some places when the fold was not there. She also told us that she saw a place Chandi Nagar in Baghpat.”
Police suspect that Dipti was driven towards Haryana from Baghpat where she was made to board a train to Delhi in the early hours on Friday.
“She is holding back some facts and we are yet to ask a lot of questions. The people involved are not professional criminals. We suspect that the incident could be a fallout of some complicated situation in her life,” the SSP said.
“We are scanning her former friends from school, college and even previous companies she worked with. We are made to believe her statements until we get some contradictory evidence. The suspects could be more than four,” the SSP said.
