Child lifter gang members in custody of Ranchi Police
A child lifter gang has been exposed in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand. The miscreants of this gang deceive people by using the name of former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and as soon as they see an opportunity, they snatch their children and run away. This gang had carried out a similar incident 20 days ago in Argora police station area of Ranchi. However, after receiving the information, the police swung into action and with the help of surveillance, they arrested eight miscreants of this gang. There are also four women in this gang.
According to Ranchi Police, miscreants used to deceive innocent people in the name of Dhoni. They told him that he would get a house and Rs 5000 in cash from Dhoni. At the same time, when people would fall into the trap, they would call them to some place with their child and then, taking advantage of the opportunity, they would steal their child. This gang had kidnapped a one and a half year old child Rudra Raj on October 22 last month. This incident was committed by a young man and a girl.
