Ludhiana businessman shot at after being abducted for ransom

Ludhiana, Nov 18 (PTI) A businessman was shot at after he was abducted by some unidentified assailants for ransom, police said on Saturday.

Sambhav Jain was kidnapped near his factory at around 8:30 pm on Friday, said Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sumit Sood.

When Jain left from his factory in his car, a motorcycle rammed into his vehicle about one kilometer away, said police.

The moment Jain came out of the car, four more men arrived and bundled him into the back seat of his car and took him along, police said.

The assailants demanded ransom from the victim's family, which informed the police.

When the accused sensed something 'fishy', they shot Jain in the thigh and left him near the Vishwakarma Chowk Road and fled away in his car, said police.

Jain is undergoing treatment at a local hospital, where his condition is stated to be stable.

The ACP further informed that a case against unidentified individuals was registered and further investigation was underway. PTI COR CHS MNK MNK MNK
