NEW DELHI: A 20-year-old mathematics student of an top college of Delhi University was allegedly kidnapped by a graduate from IP University for ransom. He then demanded Rs 1.5 crore from her father who stays in Noida.

The accused, Abhishek Deep (24) — whose late father was a top officer in the Chhattisgarh government - has, according to the police, revealed that he had cheated several "well-to-do'' girls earlier. "We found he had extracted Rs 12 lakh from another girl,'' said DCP (North) Sindhu Pillai. The cops finally rescued the girl, who was found locked inside a room in a Paharganj hotel, and arrested the accused within 16 hours of the complaint.

Sources in Maurice Nagar police said Abhishek had first met the girl at a party eight months ago and was introduced to her by a common friend. "Their relationship evolved over time. On Wednesday night, the girl's father, who was in Bangalore on work, complained to us that he had received a ransom call for Rs 1.5 crore from an unknown person from the cellphone of his daughter around 10:20 pm. He then alerted Delhi Police's control room. Maurice Nagar police registered a case of kidnapping and started investigations under inspector Alka Azad.

It was found that on August 15, the girl had received a call from Abhishek when she was outside her college. It was later found that he had asked her to meet him at Shastri Nagar Metro Station. They reached Connaught Place where he took away her mobile phone and made a ransom call to her father.

Abhishek told her that he had made the ransom call and told her to obey him or else he would get her father killed. He claimed he was a Maoist from Chhattisgarh and had contacts who could harm her family. Finding no way out, the girl accompanied the accused to Hotel Ashoka at Paharganj where he had been staying for the past one month, paying Rs 1,800 daily.

He forced the girl to book a room in her name and then locked her up inside the room. "The accused had joined the victim's close friends to keep a tab on police movements. Initially, he even shed tears, saying he too was finding the victim's mobile phone to be switched off. But when questioned closely, he broke down,'' said an officer.
