Protests in Lucknow over rising kidnapping cases

Hundreds of traders and school children of the city today protested against rise in cases of daylight kidnappings, saying they were an easy prey of criminals.

Lucknow, May 3 : Hundreds of traders and school children of the city today protested against rise in cases of daylight kidnappings, saying they were an easy prey of criminals.

The protestors said police has not been able to instil confidence among the people and there was no decrease in such incidents, the latest being the abduction of a 16-year-old boy on his way to school.

Traders protested in front of the office of a top police official, demanding adequate security.

"We are all very scared. People are not ready to send their children to school now. We don't know what is police doing," said Mahesh Sharma, a trader.

However, the Uttar Pradesh (UP) Police claims that they are doing their best to nab the abductors.

School-going children, as small as five-year-olds said they were scared to move out of their house.

"Police should secure Mohit's release soon. If such things keep happening, our parents will stop sending us to school," said Seema, a student.

Pankaj, another student added: "We do not feel safe anymore."

Businessmen allege 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.
