Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Nearly a week has passed by, before they rescued five-year-old Vihaan Gupta from a Ghaziabad building on Tuesday, the crime branch officers had substantial clues about the identities of his kidnappers.

DCP Ram Gopal Naik said the kidnappers had made the first ransom call at 12.50 am on January 28, nearly three days after they dragged Vihaan out of his school bus at gunpoint in east Delhi’s Dilshad Garden. As repeated ransom calls came in, the police named their operation “C-River”, based on the name of a mall outside which the kidnappers wanted Rs 60 lakh ransom delivered.
