The abductors demanded Rs 20 lakh from the child's father and instructed him to keep the money at a place near the railway station. The child's father told the abductors that he was unable to give that much amount. The kidnappers asked the child's father to give Rs 11 lakh.
The child's father placed the bag at the proper place but the kidnappers didn't turn up.
"They must have got the idea that some police personnel in plain cloths were deployed there," said a police official. He added that the boy was later found at a railway station.
