Paralakhemundi: An eight-year-old boy who was allegedly kidnapped from Kumuti Sahi in Kashinagar NAC of Odisha’s Gajapati district two days ago was rescued from a factory today.
According to reports, an unidentified person telephoned the parents of the child this morning and informed them about the presence of the boy at a cement factory located at Kaithapadar. The couple then rushed to the spot and rescued the child.
Further investigation by police was underway.
The boy was playing with his friends in the locality on December 16 evening when two motorcycle-borne miscreants came and asked him about the location of his father’s workplace. The duo then took the child with them on the two-wheeler.
Suspecting foul play, his friends chased the vehicle for a while but the two managed to flee the spot. The reason behind the act of the miscreants was yet to be ascertained.
