Ghaziabad, Feb 15: Police have arrested five people, alleged to have abducted the 24-year old SnapDeal employee on her way back home from office last week. Unprecedented social media attention and massive manhunt last week forced the abductors to send her back.
Dharmendra Singh, the Ghaziabad senior superintendent revealed that the main accused in the incident was a psychopath and was in love with the woman, without her knowledge. He also said that the entire plot was inspired by SRK's film 'Darr', which had a similar situation.
"It is just like a case portrayed in Bollywood movie ‘Darr' where Shah Rukh Khan is involved in a one-sided affair. The prime accused just like a psycho and lived in a virtual reality. The criminals are hardcore. We are verifying whether the men are auto drivers or not," he Singh.
Officials have revealed that none of the five arrested were linked to the victim. The arrest came hours after the police took Dipti for a reconstruction of the crime scene from Hindon to Morti village on Sunday evening.
Dipti returned home ast Friday and revealed what happened. She said that her abductors knew, which flavour of chips she liked. "I can say that there is someone behind this who knows her. She has told (us) that she do not know people involved in the incident. But we suspect that the mastermind could be some known person," Singh said.
Given the way the criminals treated her and how they left her at a Delhi-bound train with Rs 100 note, police says that the criminals are not professionals.
Officials, however, revealed that main accused in Dipti Sarna's abduction was a ‘psychopath' who plotted the kidnapping on the lines of the 1993 romantic thriller Darr, starring Shah Rukh Khan
