New Delhi: Ghaziabad Police today claimed to crack the kidnapping case of Snapdeal employee Dipti Sarna with the arrest of five persons, including one who is close to the family.
Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police Dharmendra Singh said that the main accused in the case, Devendra, is a psychopath who was involved in a one-sided love affair with Dipti.
"It is just like a case portrayed in Bollywood movie 'Darr' where Shah Rukh Khan is involved in a one-sided affair. We arrested all culprits involved in Snapdeal Executive Dipti's abduction today. Total 5 were involved. Man named Devendra was the mastermind," Singh said.
Belonging to Sonipat in Haryana, Devendra is a history-sheeter who had had earlier spent time in jail, he said.
In her statement, according to Singh, Dipti mentioned that at many instances that the kidnappers did not harm her and provided her food as well.
"Question that was arising was why was she released? This was hinting to a close person being involved who did not harm her," Singh said, adding that 'Devendra was deeply in love with Dipti and wanted to marry her'.
"Finding out motive behind kidnapping was difficult task as girl's family didn't receive ransom call.Girl wasn't subjected to any physical harm," Singh said.
"He (Devendra) was confident that the victim will agree to marry him after his heroic act and he will settle down in Nepal," Singh added.
Deepti was abducted by four criminals in the garb of an auto-rickshaw driver and passengers on Wednesday night while returning home from the Vaishali Metro station. On Friday, she called up her father Narendra Sarna and told him that she managed to flee from her abductors and reached the New Delhi Railway Station.
Her mobile phone, laptop, purse and some other personal articles were taken by the abductors and were yet to be recovered.
