The incident took place in Delhi when a cab driver kidnapped a Doctor on his first cab service for OLA. The 29-year-old had been missing from Preet Vihar since the night of July 6. Four persons have been arrested.

Police said the men were demanding Rs 5 crore ransom from “the Ola CEO”.

Police said the driver used forged documents to partner with Ola. Some of the other accused were also with Ola earlier.

JCP (eastern range) Ravindra Singh Yadav told media that police have rescued the doctor, Akkala Srikanth Goud, who comes from Jogulamba Gadwal district in Telangana, and that he is being brought to Delhi by police.

“We have arrested four persons after a brief encounter, in which one of the kidnappers was injured. Our teams are conducting raids to nab the others,” Yadav said, adding that they wanted to “make a quick buck”.
