A 33-year-old builder,in a letter addressed to senior police officers of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh,has alleged that he was kidnapped by four men,beaten up and locked in police station in Uttar Pradesh.

The complainant,Vikas Aggarwal ,has also alleged inaction by the Delhi Police,claiming that after he was kidnapped his wife called a PCR,but received no help.

According to Aggarwal,a resident of East Delhi’ Mandawli,he was returning home on June 23,when four men confronted him and “identified themselves as crime branch officials.” They then allegedly dragged Aggarwal to a Santro car at gunpoint and drove away.

“At a short distance,a declared proclaimed offender of the area,Rahul Singh,was standing. That was when I realised that I was being kidnapped. They beat me up brutally and my eye was so swollen after that that I could not open it,” Aggarwal told Newsline.

Local police officers said Aggarwal had registered a police complaint against Singh on June 22,which may be the cause of his kidnap.

Aggarwal further alleged he was taken to Babugarh police station by Singh and his accomplices,where the Station Officer of the Babugarh police station,Samarjeet,put him in the lock-up for the entire night.

According to Aggarwal,Singh approached him on June 24 morning and told him: “Did you see my setting?” He also claimed that he was threatened by the SO,who said if Aggarwal identified his abductors,the four would kill him.

SO Samarjeet,meanwhile,told Newsline over the phone that he did not put Aggarwal in the lockup.

“On June 24,a bleeding Aggarwal came to me and told me that Singh and his accomplices beat him up. After his medical examination,we registered case of attempt to murder (307 IPC) against Rahul,” SO Samarjeet said.

Mandawli police officers said Aggarwal and Singh were business partners and had a fallout. On June 22,Aggarwal registered a complaint of theft against Singh at Mandawli police station.

“There are allegations from Aggarwal. We are investigating. No kidnapping case has been registered yet. UP police is also conducting investigations,” said a police officer at Mandawli police station.
