The woman, in her complaint, has said that four of these 12 persons were known to her.

"The victim, who is a mother of three and whose husband works in Mumbai, was kidnapped from her house at around 10 pm by four persons known to her and taken to Katar village in Patan district on knife-point," Mr Patel said.
