Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], November 18 (ANI): Mumbai police on Wednesday rescued a four-month-old infant who was kidnapped from a road-side slum in Juhu and arrested three people, including a doctor hailing from Telangana.

"On the night of November 11, a doctor from Telangana, namely Mohammad Nasruddin kidnapped the child from Mumbai and sold it to a couple in Telangana for Rs 4 lakh," a police release said.

The release said there was no eye-witness but investigation based on CCTV footage from the area and interrogation of auto-rickshaw drivers from the area lead to the accused.

"Juhu police had formed a team of 25 people in the case and investigated around 250 CCTV footages of the surrounding streets and shops and interrogated close to 50 auto-rickshaw drivers and uncovered the conspiracy," the release said.

It added that along with the doctor, two auto-rickshaw drivers - Ramesh Vyankat and Mahesh Dhamaiya Ditti - have also been arrested. (ANI)
