HYDERABAD: Two days after the abduction of Telangana medico Akkala Srikanth Goud from East Delhi, allegedly by an OLA cab driver, police have not been able to trace him. However, they say that Srikanth was not the target.

The cops who are probing the case of PG Medical student Akkala Srikanth Goud from Telangana, say that a single man cannot execute the kidnapping and traverse the outskirts of the easily.  In the meantime, cops also received information from OLA that they received a call from a cab driver, stating that he had kidnapped the doctor and demanded that the pay  `5 crore.

The East Delhi police who were hoping to nab the cabbie by Saturday night, could not reach the spot, as he has been constantly moving. “The location of kidnapper is not stationary and he is on the move constantly. We have good leads and are working on them,” said ACP Singh.  The cops also found that the documents provided by the cabbie to Ola were fake. This is another reason for them to suspect that a gang behind the kidnap and that Srikanth was not the target, but he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. More than 10 teams have been formed by the Delhi cops to rescue the doctor and arrest the accused, the ACP said.
