ELURU: A 12-year-old boy who was abducted from Visakhapatnam on Thursday morning, escaped from the clutches of abductors at the railway station here in the evening.

According to the police, Voppangi Praveen Kumar, son of CAN Das, was waiting for the school bus at Aganampudi in Visakhapatnam this morning. 

Two youths approached him and one of them gave chocolates to the boy saying that today was his birthday. Kumar accepted the chocolates given by the unidentified miscreant. 

In the meantime, the other miscreant drugged the boy by putting a handkerchief at his nose from behind. When he fell unconscious, the miscreants took him to the railway station.  

The abductors boarded a train towards Vijayawada along with the boy. Kumar regained consciousness when the train reached Eluru. After realising that he was drugged and abducted by the two miscreants, he immediately got down from the train and approached the railway police on the platform. He informed them about his abduction. After getting the details of his parents and their phone numbers, Sub-Inspector N Ramu contacted them. 

Das, a teacher, told the Sub-Inspector over phone that they were searching for Kumar who went missing in the morning. Actually, Kumar is the son of Raghavendra Rao, who is a reporter of a Telugu daily at Komarada mandal in Vizianagaram district. He gave his son to his brother-in-law Das of Visakhapatnam for adoption. 

After receiving the information from the boy’s parents, their relative Raghava Rao of Vijayawada visited Eluru. After verifying all the details pertaining to the boy and completing the formalities, the police handed over Kumar to Raghava Rao. A kidnap case was registered.
