Mauritius: A former police officer alleges that he was abducted for Rs 50,000

A former policeman claims of having been kidnapped for 50,000 rupees (about 2000 euros) on Tuesday evening.
According to him, his hands and feet were tied up by two individuals. In addition, they were even gagged with adhesive tape. His alleged kidnappers forced him to contact his relatives in order to raise this amount. An appointment would been have taken for the next day at 9 o’clock to hand over the ransom.
This policeman decided to reconcile with his family after being indicted with a provisional charge of incineration.

The latter would have approached a local resident in a village in the South of Mauritius to find him a religious to help him in his reconversion. He took his car around 9 o'clock and went to the rendezvous given by the individual. The friend of the latter was to join them later.
A few minutes later, the two individuals threatened him with a sharp weapon to require the ransom. He would have been sequestered in an isolated place. His alleged kidnappers took him, in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, on the taxi stand in Caudan, Port Louis. They stayed until 7:00 in the morning but seeing the taxis arrived, they tried to boot but the car had broken down. His alleged kidnappers then fled.
The former policeman was able to escape and went to the police station of the capital, as stated in the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper. The police investigation continues. The criminals are currently wanted by the police.
