Man held for kidnapping boy from railway station
New Delhi: An obsessive desire to have a son turned 25-year-old Vidya Bhusan into criminal, who was arrested from RK Puram for kidnapping a four-year-old boy from New Delhi railway station, Delhi Police said on Sunday.
Police said that on November 17, a woman belonging to Rajasthan complained that her son was kidnapped while they were leaving for Jaipur from New Delhi railway station. She said that around 9.00 am, the accused – who was already at the station – approached them and offered them food. He became very helpful to them and even offered lunch, the woman told cops.
"At about 6.45 pm, her son started crying, and Bhusan took her son out, on the pretext that he will give him biscuit, but did not come back. She search for the two, but could not find them," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Railway) Dinesh Kumar Gupta.
A case was registered based on the woman's complaint and cops analysed CCTV footage of the station and examined many auto drivers/e-rickshaw drivers, rickshaw pullers, as well as members of Delhi Police's eyes-and-ear schemes.
Eventually, a police team was constituted by Meera Sharma, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Railway), which found Bhusan alone at RK Ashram.
"He was thoroughly interrogated, and subsequently confessed that he had kept the child at the house of his brother in Sikar, Rajasthan. He intended to shift the child to Siwan, Bihar, where his wife lives with his family. On his instance, the kidnapped child was safely rescued from Khatu Shyam Ji Industrial area," said Gupta.
The DCP added that the accused revealed that he has a child with his wife, but he wanted a son as well. However, as his wife had been ill for some time, the couple could not procreate. Bhusan was looking for an opportunity to kidnap a boy, and finally found the chance when he noticed that the complainant alone with her son at New Delhi railway station.
"The accused came to Delhi about six years ago and start plying e-rickshaw and cycle-rickshaw on rent," police said.
