Kidnapped doctor couple returned

BACKcoupTo the relief of the medical fraternity, Dr Pankaj
Gupta and his wife Shobhra turned up at his in-laws
home in Gaya.

They seemed traumatised, incoherent and confused and
each gave different versions of their release to the
police.

They said they were released near Lucknow Railway
station and that all through their captivity they
were heavily sedated and could not quite recall the
details of their journey from Lucknow to Gaya.

Police say they were released because of pressure
mounted by the Bihar police and their UP
counterparts.
