Kidnapped 4-month-old baby got rescued within 16 hours, thanks to this quick-witted cop

Losing your baby must be the most dreadful thing to even imagine. However, miracles do happen when good samaritans and prompt police officers come to the rescue. Kidnapped at the wee hours 2 a.m. on Wednesday, in Hyderabad, a 4-month-old baby boy named Faizan reached home with the help of the police by 6 p.m. on the same day.

A marvellous case of thinking on the feet led the Hyderabad police to catch the two kidnappers the same day. It was also found that Faizan Khan was kidnapped while he slept peacefully next to his mother.

It was a dreadful Wednesday for Humera Begum, a resident of Nampally, Hyderabad as she woke up to her missing four-month-old toddler Faizan. Her son was missing from the footpath they slept on in front of Himmathram Jewellers near Dargah Yousafain in Nampally, Hyderabad.

In complete disarray, she rushed to the Nampally police station to launch a FIR. The vigilant cops with their quick presence of mind decided to watch and analyse the CCTV footage near the location. In an interview to Times of India, Nampally inspector R Sanjay Kumar said, “The two kidnapping the boy were captured by CCTV cameras.”

From there it only took a matter of 16 hours for the cops to crack down the kidnappers and return the four-month-old boy to his mother. During the investigation, it was revealed that auto-driver Md Mushtaq, 42, and his friend, cook Md Yousuf, 25, residents of Habeebnagar, kidnapped Faizan Khan at 2 a.m. on Wednesday. The two accused wanted to sell the kid to Md Ghouse of Rehmatnagar, who wanted to adopt a child. Ghouse refused to take the child as they noticed no parents were accompanying the child.

The cops caught the kidnappers at 6 p.m. and returned Faizan to Humera. We salute the Nampally police for their quick thinking and the determination to help an ailing mother to get her son back.
