Abohar, August 30

The police have cracked a case in which an engineering student was kidnapped, robbed of his i20 car, assaulted and thrown into a canal on August 22 near the city bypass here.

The police said clues were found from a similar crime registered at the Abohar police station in 2018, which helped them arrest Pawan (22) and Ajay Nayak (23) while their third accomplice Monu is still absconding. The duo has confessed to have committed the robbery after assaulting Arpit Mittal (28), son of Dr Manmohan Mittal and Dr Rashmi Mittal, residents of Ambica City colony on the Padampur Road.

Arpit was kidnapped near Sukhwant Palace around 10:30 pm on August 22, when he was going to deliver food to a friend, Rajat Soni, by car. Suddenly, three youths stopped the car, entered it forcibly and took him to Abohar.

When Arpit did not reach Rajat for about half an hour, the latter contacted him on phone. Arpit informed him that some youths had forcibly taken him to Abohar. Rajat informed Arpit's family and the police. The family, along with ASI Mohinder Singh from the Purani Abadi police station, went to Abohar to search for Arpit. Later, Arpit called his mother to inform her that he was in Abohar.

Arpit was later found injured outside a canal near the Kandhwala Road on the Abohar-Malout bypass here.
