Cab driver attempts to kidnap children at Shamsabad airport

Hyderabad: An attempt to kidnap children was foiled at Shamsabad airport here on Friday. According to sources, members of a family, who arrived from Mumbai, complained that a cab driver had attempted to kidnap their children. Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) police informed that Srinath along with his family members arrived at the Hyderabad Airport from Mumbai. They booked two Ola cabs online. While the family was waiting for the cabs outside the airport, a private car driver approached them by posing himself as Ola cab driver and picked up three persons including two girls in his cab.

Before others got into the car, the driver allegedly sped away. The other family members chased the car for over 5 km and finally caught the cab at a petrol bunk at Shamsabad. The driver, however, fled, leaving the three persons behind. The friend of the absconded private car driver was caught and handed over to RGIA police.

Investigations are on.
