PATNA: Police in Bihar in a major breakthrough today arrested Ranjit Don who was the mastermind behind the kidnapping of two sons of a Delhi-based businessman Babulal Sharma.
Don was arrested by special team of police from the Lakhisarai district.
Police have already arrested Don’s two other accomplices, namely Lalan Kumar alias Lallu Gupta and Manoj Yadav and sent them to jail.
The shrewd gangsters had invited the businessman’s sons on the pretext of awarding big contracts and also arranged air tickets for them but kidnapped soon after they landed at the Patna airport.
According to police, it was Don who himself had come driving the car to receive the businessman’s sons from the Patna airport masquerading as driver. They were kidnapped last month.
Later they were rescued by the police from the Kajara hill areas of Lakhisarai district on October 26 after about a week of captivity.
The police also arrested five kidnappers involved in the crime. The kidnappers had sought a ransoms of Rs 4 crore (Rs 40 million) for the safe release of victims.
The victims told the police that the kidnappers were treating them very badly during captivity, not giving them enough food and not even allowing them to meet nature’s calls.
