A resident of Rohtak on Wednesday landed in trouble for allegedly taking the police for a ride.

The man,Manish Jain — who runs a tea stall in Rohtak — allegedly concocted the story of his son’s kidnapping while his son had left home on his own after being beaten up by his wife for not doing well in studies.

The case pertains to Babra colony resident Jain,who on Tuesday had alleged that his son Priyansh has been kidnapped and lodged a complaint with the police. However,the 11-year-old boy,Priyansh,was recovered from New Delhi on Wednesday afternoon. He told the police that he had left home on his own.

Following this,the Rohtak district police registered a case against Jain for misleading them. “The complainant concocted the story of his son’s kidnapping. He concealed that Priyansh was beaten up and threatened by his wife as he was not doing well in his studies. Also,Jain did not disclose that Priyansh had fled with some clothes and cash. He had also told his mother that he was leaving home because of her persistent beating,” Ved Singh,Rohtak district police spokesperson,said.

Immediately after the kidnapping complaint was lodged at city police station,SP Rajesh Duggal constituted four teams to trace the child. The boy was spotted at ITO in New Delhi and brought back to Rohtak in the afternoon. Earlier,Jain,along with his relatives and neighbours had staged a protest and blocked roads in Rohtak city.

“We have handed over the child to his parents but also booked Manish Jain and his wife on charges of misleading the police. Another case has been registered against over 10 people who blocked road and obstructed traffic in Rohtak today,” said Singh.
