In a major breakthrough, police managed to rescue businessman Praveen Somani from Uttar Pradesh, who was abducted from Raipur about a fortnight ago.
“Raipur police in a very successful operation managed to rescue Praveen Somain,” Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Raipur Arif Seikh said.
The SSP who was closely monitoring the entire operation would fly back to Swami Vivekanand airport Raipur from Delhi with Somani by Wednesday late night.
This is a major relief for Raipur police which was under immense pressure from public as well as political quarters for quick rescuing of Praveen Somani.
Notably, Somani was abducted near his factory Somani Processor steel factory located in Siltara on January 8.
Police sources informed that he was abducted by a professional gang active in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Sources also revealed that abduction was done with the help for some people knowing Somani. The names of persons arrested and people behind the entire conspiracy will be revealed on Thursday.
