    • Ahmedabad Abductors abandon Bharat Ghalchar when police storm hideout; Vishwa Hindu Parishad calls off Banaskantha bandh on Monday

      Banaskantha youth Bharat Ghalchar (22), who was abducted near Deesa on Sunday while on way to his marriage here, was rescued from the city in the early hours of Monday. His abductors abandoned him on the Mandal-Becharaji Road when they saw a police party.

      Ghalchar was abducted by his brother’s in-laws, who were against the inter-community marriage of their girl with the victim’s brother.

      Ahmedabad Local Crime Branch (LCB) and the Vejalpur police received a tip-off from an anonymous caller that the abductors — Habib Shah Sai, Arif Shah Sai and their accomplices — were holding the victim captive in Mandal village.

      LCB Sub-Inspector T S Gohil, said: “We received a tip-off that Ghalchar was kept in an open field surrounding a dargah. The police immediately sent out raid parties.

    • Meanwhile, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has rescinded the Banaskantha bandh, which had been called a day earlier to protest against the abduction. No incidents of violence were reported in the district on Monday, the police said, adding that a manhunt has been launched for the absonding men.
