New Delhi, Dec.7 (AN): A woman and her associate were arrested for allegedly kidnapping six infants in the west Delhi.

The police identified the woman as Ritu Kapoor and her husband and associate in the crime, Mohammad Zia-ul, at a press conference.
"We have arrested two people. One is a lady named Ritu Kapoor and her associate Mohammad Zia-ul. We have solved six kidnapping cases after their arrest. Basically they targeted infants between the age of one-six months and in the past one year and six months they have kidnapped six children. The first case was of Pandav Nagar area, where she kidnapped a 3-month-old child and kept it with herself, whom we found last evening. After that they kidnapped 5 children from different locations like Hari Nagar area, Rajouri Garden area, Vikaspuri and Vrindavan area," Sharad Aggarwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police, West District, New Delhi.
The woman was captured by the police following the description given by some of the parents whose children had gone missing.

And she had also sold brass rings to some of the victim's parents and that was a link, as they told us. And from there we took it forward," Sharad Aggarwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police, West District, New Delhi. (ANI)
