Acting on a tip-off, a police team led by Sadar Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Sanjay Bharati raided the village last night and rescued Ankur Kumar, native of Patna's Keori tola, SP Saurabh Kumar said.

Three motorcycles, five mobile phones, one 9 mm pistol, eight rounds of ammunition, four disposable syringes and sedatives have been seized from the abductors, Kumar said. The motive behind the boy's kidnapping was not clear but all six abductors were tenants in his father's house in Patna, the SP said.
