Inspired by a TV crime serial, a along with her boyfriend today kidnapped her 4-year-old cousin brother for ransom in a bid to lead lavish life here, said police which rescued the boy within hours.

Purnisha (22), her boyfriend Mayank Mehta and his friend Mayank Sindal have been arrested for kidnapping Yug Bhandari for a ransom of Rs 50 lakh in Mansarovar Colony here, said DCP (West) Sameer Kumar Singh.



Purnisha lured Yug out of the house promising him a motorcycle ride around 3.30 PM and along with Mehta and Sindal, who were waiting for her, kidnapped him, he said.

"The case was solved within four hours of the victim's father, Ritesh, informing the police of the ransom call. Teams from four police stations were pressed into the case. The case was solved on the basis of call records and interrogation of the family," he said, adding the boy was rescued from Mahamandir locality later in the evening.

The couple wanted to lead a lavish life with the Rs 50 lakh ransom money and accepted that their plan was inspired by a case shown in TV crime serial, he added.

"The plan was hatched after Purnisha came to know that her maternal uncle Ritesh, a businessman, had received a huge cash payment," he said.

The SP said, "Mehta and Sindal, who are engineering students, said that one Bharat was also party to the plan."

"We will soon arrest Bharat," he added.
