A press release issued by the NNMC said, “In this context, a delegation of office-bearers and representatives from Marwadi society on Monday separately met with Home Minister Shakti Bahadur Basent, Inspector General of Police Upendra Kant Aryal and Inspector General of Armed Police Force Durja Kumar Rai and urged them to ensure security of life and property.” NNMC has also extended sincere thanks to the Government of Nepal, Nepal Police, APF, Government of India, Embassy of India in Nepal and Indian Police for their role in the safe release of Kedia. “Incidents of kidnapping had not been reported for the past five years. Not long ago, industrialists and businesspersons in Kaliya of Bara had received threats from unidentified groups and there were also kidnapping attempts. But the criminal gang was successful in kidnapping Kedia. This has triggered panic among us,” read the release. “But the unharmed rescue of Kedia and arrest of four suspects have allayed our fears to some extent,” it added.
