PATNA: An abducted boy was rescued and five of his abductors were arrested on Thursday morning here, the police said.

Sunny Kumar, a Class 9 student was abducted in Saran district two days ago and the abductors had demanded a ransom of Rs 60 lakh for his release from his father, a contractor, and threatened to kill the boy if the amount was not paid soon.

Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj said a joint police team of Patna and Saran rescued Sunny. "Police raided a lodge in Bahadurpur locality here, rescued the boy, arrested five abductors and seized arms," said Maharaj.

According to the police officials, the abductors had kept Sunny in a room of a lodge. Sunny was kidnapped when he was returning home after school. The abductors were living in the lodge disguised as students.

Over a dozen cases of abduction have been reported in the state in 2018.
