Two young men who were kidnapped three days ago have been rescued from India and handed over to their families.
The Makawanpur district administration, with the help of Indian police, rescued Govind
Shrestha, 23, and Pawan Rana Magar, 22, from Swargattole in Sub-Division 9.
According to Jayashwor Rimal, deputy commissioner of district police, three Indian nationals allegedly abducted the two men at 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 19 at Hetauda Bus Park. The two were freed from the clutches of alleged kidnappers from Bihar, India.
Investigations revealed that the two drug addicts and the alleged kidnappers were known to them. The two parties had met prior to the abduction. The kidnappers allegedly demanded a ransom of 500,000 rupees from each of them and threatened to extract their kidneys and sell the organs if the ransom was not paid.
According to police, further investigation into the case is underway.
