In recent months, there have been reports of kidnapping cases in India that have resulted in a total of over 50 people being freed.
A few weeks ago, two members of a group were kidnapped by a group of men in Uttar Pradesh’s Gaya district.
The police then filed a case against the perpetrators, and today, a total of 42 people were released.
These people were not only freed, they were given money and free mobile phones.
According to the National Crime Records Bureau, there were 5,927 cases of kidnapping reported in the country in the year ending March 2019, with a total number of 18,869 victims.
Some of the kidnappings in the past few months were connected to the death of a young man in Uttar Paharganj, while in June, two men were abducted in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
In September, another kidnap case was reported in Maharashtra.
But in all, there are currently 5,664 cases of people being kidnapped, according to the Bureau of Crime Statistics.
There have also been cases of the people being sold as slaves in India, which has led to a rise in kidnappings and slave-related crimes.
One case in Uttarakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, led to the arrest of three persons, one of whom was a former slave.
“The arrest of the three persons led to further investigation.
The arrested persons confessed that they had been living as slaves for five years and had sold them as slaves,” said the state government’s director general of police (DGP) S.N. Bhatia.
Bhatia said the investigation led to arrests in several other cases, including cases of trafficking of children, kidnapping and rape.
More than 20 people have been killed by their captors in the last two months alone.
This year alone, the total number killed in India’s kidnapping cases reached 11,716.
At least 25 people were killed in kidnapping cases, and the victims are usually girls, according the police.
Despite the rise in kidnapping, there has been no clear trend in the rise of kidnapping in India.
However, the government has made efforts to clamp down on the crime, especially with regards to the sale of young girls as sex slaves.
Since last year, the Union Home Ministry has made a number of efforts, including making it mandatory for buyers of abducted girls to inform the authorities, and also increased the amount of ransom paid to kidnappers.
It is not only parents who have been blamed for the crime in India; the government also has made it a criminal offence to sell young girls.
This has led many parents in the city of Ahmedabad to boycott school and work, while some in the other cities also protested.
After the arrests, the police has also started taking steps to educate the public about the dangers of kidnapping.
