Two persons have been arrested for allegedly kidnapping a 11-year-old boy for Rs 10 lakh ransom earlier this month, the police said today. They were arrested from the Bhopura intersection here last night after an encounter in which a police officer and one of the accused was injured, Senior Superintendent of Police H N Singh said. The third person accused in the case managed to escape and a man hunt has been launched to nab him, the officer said. "Sunil, who was injured in the firing, has confessed to the crime.

He and senior sub-inspector Jitender Singh have been hospitalised," the SSP said. The boy was kidnapped on September 7 for Rs 10 lakh ransom and was rescued the following day. The accused then had managed to escape, Singh said.
