In 2021, India recorded 101,707 cases of kidnapping and abduction, a 19.9% increase from 2020, according to National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data.
A spine-chilling video of a kidnapping of a woman by four men in Haryana state's Yamuna Nagar district has gone viral on social media.
The incident reportedly took place on Saturday, when a woman was getting into her car after visiting a gym and was all alone.
The CCTV footage, that is doing the rounds on the Internet now, shows three men walking up to a parked car. As soon as the woman sits inside her car, they forcefully enter the vehicle from all three sides and try to kidnap her.
Within a few seconds, they are seen rushing out of the car and running away.
The kidnappers reportedly gave up their plan and ran away after the woman screamed and fought back.
Police have arrested one of the accused; the other three are on the run.
A further investigation is underway to ascertain what prompted the accused to commit the alleged crime.
