16-year-old kidnapped in Lucknow

Unidentified armed men kidnapped a 16-year-old boy at gunpoint in Lucknow on Tuesday.

Lucknow, May 1 : Unidentified armed men kidnapped a 16-year-old boy at gunpoint in Lucknow on Tuesday.

Police said Mohit Chandani, a class ten student and son of a rich trader, was intercepted by the alleged kidnappers in two cars while he was on his way to school in the state capital.

Police have launched a manhunt to nab the abductors.

"We are working on the clues given by Mohit's father. A team of STF (Special Task Force) has been deployed and we are trying that the child is recovered soon. I do not want to reveal the clues as it would hamper the investigation," Senior Superintendent of Police Jyoti Narayan said.

According to police, abductors also had a scuffle with Mohit's father and fired shots in the air to create panic.

However, Amarish, Mohit's father blamed the police for being slow in following up on the case.

"Police has registered a complaint but have not contacted me till now. They were three people - one of them was a driver and other two took him at gunpoint," he said.

The boy's mother claimed that they don't have enmity with anyone.

"Today, he was being dropped by his father on a scooter. They had reached near the school when the abductors pushed the father aside and took away the child. We do not have enmity with anyone," Mohit's mother Kanchan said.

The kidnapping has shaken the state since it comes in the middle of the Assembly polls.

City's businessmen allege that there is a nexus between kidnappers, local politicians and the state police.

But police deny the charges and instead blame the rising crime rate on irresponsible citizens who prefer to give ransom to kidnappers to reporting the crime to the police.
