A dentist was kidnapped in broad daylight as a mob of over 40 men forcibly barged into her house in Telangana. Vaishali, 24, was abducted from her own home in Adibatla village of Ranga Reddy district on December 9.
A shocking video clip of the incident has surfaced throughout social media. The video shows around 30-40 men approaching and vandalizing the victim's house. They were also smashing the car windows.
The victim's parents claimed that there were as many as around 100 men involved. The family has accused a man named Naveen Reddy of kidnapping their daughter.
The victim was fortunately rescued safely by the police after an operation that lasted a few hours. Police have reportedly arrested around 18 people. However, the main accused, Naveen, has fled away and is yet to be caught. A case has been registered.
Naveen Reddy had allegedly been harassing the victim to marry him. The duo had met at a badminton court and have been friends ever since.
