They looted cash from the driver of a potato-laden truck, which was on its way to Bihar from West Bengal via Dumka district of Jharkhand, and abducted his helper for ransom. After committing the crime they fled in a four wheeler Tuesday, Sub-Divisional Police Officer (Jermundi) Animesh Naithany said.
A police patrolling team chased and caught them that very night, he said Wednesday.
The helper was freed from the clutches of the abductors, he said.
