The stats show that around, 356 cases of kidnapping were reported this year against 130 in 2013. Some of the cases were still in mystery like the kidnap of the Musheerabad infant from a maternity hospital.
Adding to the woe, the Gangs of women criminals who target school kids for ornaments are also on the prowl for kidnapping children.
Police commissioner Mahender Reddy said “As per the SC ruling cases of missing cases have to be registered as kidnap cases. This could be a reason for the rise in cases.”
Experts say that there is a 173 per cent rise in kidnap cases and that the claims of the police are not believable.
