A courageous mother fought two kidnappers and foiled their attempt to kidnap her 4-year-old daughter in Delhi, India, on July 21. The entire action was captured on CCTV cameras placed in the neighbourhood.

At around 4 pm, two bike borne men came to victim’s door step at Shakarpur area, asking for water to drink. Just as the woman stepped inside the house to fetch water, the pillion rider grabbed her daughter standing nearby and jumped on to the bike which his accomplice had kept ready to flee. However, the brave mother leapt from the house and catching hold of her daughter kicked the motorbike causing the kidnappers to fumble and fall. She held on to bike for a few seconds, shouting for help. However, while the pillion rider ran away from the scene, the rider managed to kick start the bike and fled from the scene.

Hearing the ruckus, a neighbor rushes out and gives chase, while another neighbor pushes his scooter to the middle of the street blocking the path of the fleeing rider. As the rider tries to avoid the obstacle, the man shoves him to the ground while trying to catch hold of the fleeing pillion rider. In the melee, the duo managed to escape.

On receiving information, police reached the spot and took hold of motorbike abandoned by the culprits, besides a bag containing a pistol with four live cartridges.
“The accused came to the house of the victim around 4 pm and rang the door bell. The woman opened the door, following which the duo asked for water to drink, believing that she would go inside to bring it. However, the woman had kept a bottle filled with water near the door itself. As she was trying to pick the bottle up, one of them picked up the child and tried to flee on the bike with his accomplice,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Jasmeet Singh.

He further added, “The accused had been conducting surveillance of the area since the last one week. One of the CCTV footages had captured their presence in the area two days prior to the kidnapping attempt,”

In the course of investigation, police found that the motorbike abandoned by the fugitives had a fake number plate. Later, the owner of the motorcycle was identified as 34-year-old Dheeraj, through its chassis and engine numbers. He was then arrested frm his residence.

“During interrogation, Dheeraj stated that the 4-year-old girl’s uncle Upendera Kumar Gupta (35), was the main conspirator. Upendera knew Dheeraj and hatched a conspiracy with him to kidnap his brother’s daughter and promised to give him Rs 1 lakh. Based on his confession, Upendera was nabbed. Upendera was in debt and planned to extort money from his own brother who owns a garment store,” said DCP Singh, adding that they are trying to nab the absconding accused.
