| | New Delhi

Delhi Police arrested two persons, a woman and a Bhojpuri actor who kidnapped his own two-year-old son to get revenge on his ex-wife.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, South East district, Romil Baaniya, said the accused has been identified as Mohammed Shahid (23), the biological father of the kidnapped boy and his live-in partner Kashish (22) alias  Alisha.

The DCP said that on June 26, Mumtaz the grandmother of the child had lodged a complaint at Jamia Nagar Police Station regarding the kidnapping of her daughter Muskaan's two-year-old son.

A team was immediately constituted and raids were conducted at different areas of Delhi and Bareilly. Information with regard to the kidnapped child was also given to all concerned agencies and a reward of Rs 20,000 was declared.

"Initially the biological father Shahid diverted the investigation of the case to raise suspicion over his live-in partner Alisha and mislead the police team to conduct raids at different places," said the DCP adding, "But when the team raised some suspicion over Shahid, he disappeared from the picture and hid from the police."

With the help of technical surveillance and a tip-off, on September 11, Shahid was found hiding somewhere in the area of West Vinod Nagar and he was arrested along with Alisha. Subsequently, on their instance the kidnapped child was also recovered and returned back to his mother.

"During interrogation, accused Shahid disclosed that he was married to  Muskaan (the biologiocal mother) two-years-ago and had a son form her, but later Muskaan married some other person and after they filed a divorce, Shahid wanted to keep the child, which Muskaan refused to allow. So, he hatched a conspiracy with  Alisha to kidnap the child and take revenge from Muskaan," said Baaniya.

Shahid is a resident of Muzafarpur in Bihar and he is a regional actor-cum-dancer and also worked in some regional music albums and acted in Bhojpuri films, said the police officer.
