Rae Bareilly: A businessman was arrested in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh, for kidnapping himself to settle a debt of Rs 15 lakh taken for gambling.

Suraj Singh, the accused, works in a Bangalore-based marketing company.

Rae Bareli SP Alok Priyadarshi said that Suraj told his wife Ragini that he was going on an assignment on September 14 and then went missing.

The wife started calling his friends and relatives to reach him, but to no avail.

“On Saturday (September 17), Suraj’s wife sent a message to her mobile number to pay Rs. A message was received demanding a ransom of 15 lakhs. So she informed the police,’ said the SP.

The police immediately registered a case and tracked down the number in Kanpur.

“We also found that he did not have any property problem nor was he involved in any relationship. But it emerged that he had taken a loan without the knowledge of his wife and other family members,” the officer said.

The police, through surveillance, found out that Suraj was involved in ‘online gambling’ and subsequently arrested him.
