Businessman abducted

Birgunj, November 19:

An unidentified gang abducted manager of the Shiv Shakti Aluminum Industry Binod Khetan in Birgunj this evening.

Three other persons were also abducted along with Khetan but they were released on the way. SP Kaman Singh Thapa said the three other abductees — Khetan’s driver and two employees — have come into contact with the police. All of them were abducted from Chorni VDC-4 while they were heading for Birgunj from the industry.

Police have taken Khetan’s driver Harendra Chaudhary into custody for investigation. Chaudhary has sustained head injury in the incident.

A team of APF has been dispatched from Birgunj to search for Khatan, said Thapa. The border security check posts have been alerted as the gang could take Khetan across the border, said Parsa District Police Office.
