Ludhiana, November 18
An industrialist was kidnapped from Laddu Colony, an industrial area on Noorwala road here, on Friday night.
The kidnappers demanded ransom from the family, who informed the police. When the kidnappers came to know that the police were chasing them, they shot at the industrialist, Sambhav Jain, threw him at Jagraon bridge and fled.
Jain, who suffered a bullet injury in the thigh, is undergoing treatment at DMCH.
ACP Sumit Sood said the incident occurred at around 8.30 pm when the businessman left the factory in his car. About 700 metres from the factory, a motorcycle rammed the car. The moment Sambhav came out of the car, four more men arrived there and started arguing with him. They bundled Sambhav into his car and took him along.
They kept roaming the city for over two hours. They used Jain’s phone to call his wife and demanded ransom.
The ACP said as the kidnappers came to know that cops were after them, they shot at the victim and threw him out of the car.
Sources said cops are investigating if there was a financial dispute between the victim and the kidnappers.
