A woman and a man were captured in CCTV footage while kidnapping an eight-month-old who was sleeping next to his mother at a bus stand in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad.
The incident took place on Monday and the police have registered a case.
"A case has been registered, we went through the CCTV footage, and their identities have been established. A search is on for the accused. The two accused people first tried to interact with the victim, Rani on the pretext of friendship, later they kidnapped her baby from the Roadways Bus stand here, on the pretext of feeding the infant. The woman tried to find the accused and her baby, but she couldn't find them anywhere and immediately informed the police," senior police officer Ankit Mittal said on Tuesday.
The mother said that a young man and a woman approached her and started interacting with her. Later, the accused took Rani into confidence and provided her with a blanket and medicines for her child.
"They brought me to the bus stand after interacting with me. At night the accused man lied down on the bench at the bus stand and the woman lay near the bench. I also slept there and at around 12:00 am, they kidnapped my child while I was asleep. When I did not find my son and the accused persons, I immediately informed Galshaheed Police Station about the incident," said Rani.
