WEB DESK: An Indian, Dipti Sarna, was being followed by her abductor Devender Kumar, who stalked her for over a year after first spotting her in the Metro in Delhi , Hindustan Times reported.
The prime accused let her go unharmed after 36 hours. He told the police that he wanted her to fall in love with him – much like Shah Rukh Khan from the 1993 romantic thriller Darr.
He also lured the other accused in the case, saying she was a top businesswoman who would guarantee a ransom of 10-12 crore rupees.
He and the other abductors gave Sarna food and took care of her, with no ransom demands made. The main ‘Darr-inspired’ accused has a reward of Rs 20,000 on his head, officials said.
The accused kidnapped Sarna in an auto rickshaw last Wednesday when she was on her way home in Ghaziabad from the Vaishali Metro Station. They allegedly made her walk for around 10 kilometers, kept her in a sugarcane field before before leaving her at a suburban railway station near Narela.
