New Delhi, May 2 (UNI) Police have rescued a six-year-old boy and arrested his kidnapper from Uttar Pradesh's Badaun district.
Jamil Ahmed (21) was arrested yesterday from Pureni village in Badaun district from where Arvin Sahni was rescued.
Jamil had also demanded a ransom of Rs two lakh from the Sahni's for Arvin's release and threatened to kill the child if they informed the police.
Police said the Sahni's had hired Jamil as a labourer for some construction work in their house and he had kidnapped Arvin on April 29.
During interrogation the accused revealed that he was in need of some money and had therefore hatched a conspiracy to kidnap Arvin.
Police said Jamil was also involved in another case of kidnapping and murder of a child in 1999 and was out on bail at present.
