College student abducted in Gurgaon, freed hours later
"The case in which a student was abducted at 9:30 AM has been solved. She is safely back at her home and police officials have talked to her. Names of three accused have surfaced in the incident. They have been identified and will be arrested soon," Gurgaon Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk told reporters here.
"The accused were known to girl," he said.
The incident occurred outside the Dronacharya Government College (DSD) here.
She was rescued by the Special Investigation Team of Gurgaon Police.
The CCTV footage showed the girl screaming and pounding the open car door of the white Maruti Swift Dzire with her feet, drawing attention of passersby.
The footage showed that one of the accused entered the college through a broken wall at about 9:30 AM and called her from inside, DCP (West) Gurgaon Kulvinder Singh said.
After talking to her for a few minutes, he forced her into the car in which three of his associates were waiting.
"As soon the victim came across the wall, the accused dragged her in a white Swift Dzire car and fled from the spot. The victim cried for help which alerted the passersby who informed the police," Singh said.
"The number of the car could not be seen as the plates were covered in mud and gravel," he said.
"We have filed an FIR in the matter and are inquiring with the college management and eyewitnesses. Prima facie it appeared to be a pre-planned abduction," the DCP said.
Meanwhile, an eyewitness said that he followed the car to some distance.
"The woman shouted for help and I ran after the car. I went behind till sector 4-7. The car either went to sector 4-7 or Pataudi road because these are the two ways. While one was driving, the others held the woman. She might be about 19 years of age and was wearing a red salwar and yellow dupatta," he said.
