Ghaziabad:  A 38-year-old software engineer was allegedly kidnapped a night before his birthday in Ghaziabad's Radhakunj Nandgram colony, police said on Friday. Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police Vaibhav Krishna said Rajiv Kumar, a native of Ranipur in Haridwar who works for a multinational information technology company, had exited a cab in the city on Wednesday night. He got down at the intersection of Rajnagar extension at Delhi-Meerut road to board a bus for Haridwar to celebrate his birthday on Thursday with his family members, the SSP said.

His family members had already reached Ranipur, Mr Krishna said, adding his family last heard from Mr Kumar when he was at Rajnagar Extension.

When Mr Kumar did not reach Ranipur till late Friday night, his family reached Ghaziabad to trace him, the officer said.

At around 11 pm on Friday, Mr Kumar's wife, Renu, received a text message from his mobile number claiming that her husband has been kidnapped and demanding a ransom of Rs 15 lakh to free him, Mr Krishna said.
