Gurgaon, Apr 10: 14-year-old schoolboy Awaz Mangla from Gurgaon's Sadar Bazar area was abducted by three kidnappers in a Maruti van on Saturday evening and was taken to Delhi, but the brave boy showed tremendous presence of mind and escaped from their clucthes, reports India TV correspondent Parveen Dahiya.
According to the boy's father, Ajay Mangla, Awaz had gone to a shop to buy something, when he was forcibly abducted by three persons in a Maruti van. The abductors tried to render him unconscious inside the van but failed.
Meanwhile, Awaz stole a ballpoint pen from the pocket of one of the kidnappers and slashed it at his face. The boy soon jumped off the van and found himself outside the Karol Bagh Metro station in Delhi.
Startled, the kidnappers tried to follow him, but Awaz ran inside the Metro station and told a CISF jawan about his abduction. The kidnappers had, meanwhile, fled.
Awaz's father informed Gurgaon police, which practically did nothing. Not a single policeman accompanied the boy's father to Karol Bagh to bring the brave schoolboy back, says Ajay Mangla.
