Deputy commissioner of police (north) Sagar Singh Kalsi said The police control room received a call from a man in Kashmir who reported that his uncle may have been kidnapped from outside a tour operator’s office at Delhi’s Kashmere Gate. The police then spoke with locals and examined the CCTV footage from various tour companies in the neighborhood.

“After speaking to vendors and checking different CCTV footage, we saw that a man was taken captive by two men in a Maruti Swift Dzire car. We had the number of the vehicle. Witnesses said the people involved in the case were from Kashmir. As soon as we received this information, we suspected that the kidnappers were taking the victim to Kashmir so we followed CCTV cameras along the route.
