According to the police, the incident took place on September 7 and the abducted have been identified as Raunak Soni, 24, and Devanand Varandani, 28, the director, were rescued by the Thane Anti-Extortion police on September 9.

The arrested accused have been identified as Lenin Murli, 20, Rohit Shelar, 20, Sagar Salve, 37, Omprakash Jaiswal, 23, Abhishek Jha, 40, Tukaram Murga, 43.

According to police sources, Lenin, who was working in the finance company earlier, planned the kidnap operation seeking a ransom of Rs 1 crore. The other accused Omprakash, contacted the Tirupati Financial Nidhi Ltd, situated Udaipur in Rajasthan, for a loan of Rs 10 crores for his construction business.

When Rounak and Devanand (director) reached Thane for verification of  documents Omprakash took them to an agent's office at Dombivli, where of the abducted was locked up while the second one was taken to a Kalyan-based lodge.

Lenin phoned the finance company using Devanand's mobile and demanded a ransom of Rs 1 crore on September 8. Krishna Poddar, a friend of director Devanand, told Lenin that they can only arrange Rs 25 lakh for which the deal was settled. Krishna travelled to Thane along with his driver Pravin Joshi, 28. Omprakash took Krishna along with the cash to his car and told him to wait there. Pravin thereafter immediately contacted to the Anti-Extortion Cell.

Rajkumar Kothmire, police inspector from the Anti-Extortion Cell, laid a trap and raided both places and rescued the abducted people. “We recovered Rs 25 lakh, ATM cards, Aadhaar cards and driving licence from the accused. All 6 were produced in court and remanded into police custody till September 13," he added.
