Two-year-old granddaughter of a retired IAS officer was kidnapped by his driver in state capital on Tuesday. The family, however, has not yet received any ransom call.
Former IAS officer, Mohammed Wasim Ahmed Anjum, said that his granddaughter Tahira, whose father, Faiz Ahmed, works in an IT company in Saudi Ararbia, was taken by the family car driver for a ride on Tuesday morning. But when the driver did not return till afternoon, Anjum lodged a kidnapping case with Pataliputra Colony police station.
The child, who lived with his mother and grandfather in Patna, was allegedly kidnapped by the driver, Raj Kumar Rai, who had been working for the former IAS officer for the past two years.
Patna SSP, Manu Maharaj said though the family received a missed call from the driver’s phone, the accused could not be traced as he later switched off his phone.
The court said that since the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act 2013, has come into force, there is no need for the court to issue any direction to comply with the law.
