The accused, identified as Akram Khan and his mother Meman, were carrying rewards of Rs 50,000 each from the Delhi Police upon their arrest, Pramod Singh Kushwah, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) said.
Based on a tip off, the police laid a trap near a bus stand on Badarpur border where the accused Akram had come to meet his associate in Delhi at around 9 pm on July 7. Subsequently, Akram was arrested. Another team arrested Meman on July 8 from ISBT Sarai Kale Khan, the DCP said.
During interrogation, the accused revealed that the duo, along with their other associates Mohd Tauhid, Nadim, Mufeed and Azruddin, had planned to kidnap the Indore-based businessman from Delhi airport. The victim was lured by the accused to come to Delhi to strike a business deal with them, Kushwah said.
They had uploaded details of a fake company in the name of "Sanjay Import and Export" on a website by the name of "SCRAPO". When the victim arrived at Delhi airport, Akram and his associate Nadim picked him from the airport in their car promising him to show the site where the scrap was lying, earlier this year. The victim was allegedly kidnapped and held hostage in a house in Mewat's Nuh, he added.
The accused also withdrew Rs 1.40 lakh from the victim's account using his debit card after taking its PIN number from him. They even shopped for Rs 1.80 lakh using the same debit card, the DCP said.
Subsequently, the victim was dumped at Alwar road from where he made calls to his family members informing them about the incident, he said.
