A 24-year-old woman, allegedly abducted in a car from Kankerbagh on June 23, was recovered on Monday.
The police had earlier arrested one Dharmendra Kumar Yadav in connection with the incident.
Patna senior superintendent of police (SSP) Manu Maharaaj said the woman was recovered on Monday and would be produced before the court on Tuesday to get her statement recorded under Section 164 of CrPC.
During interrogation, she revealed to the police that she had got married to one Chandan Kumar, which enraged her former boyfriend Dharmendra, who masterminded her “abduction” from Kankerbagh area.
The police said Chandan, who developed an intimate relationship with the girl in the absence of Dharmendra, stayed at an accommoda- tion near Hajipur in Vaishali district.
Earlier, the police had recovered an abandoned car, bridal finery, a woman’s purse and two cellphones on the day of the woman’s alleged abduction.
The police said the incident was the fallout of a triangular love affair.
The young woman, a student of Patna University, has already submitted petitions before the sub-registrar to get married with Chandan, a former friend of Dharmendra.
However, Dharmendra had been putting pressure on her to get married with him.
The SSP said a case under Section 366 (kidnapping) of the IPC was lodged against the statement of the victim’s father, a realtor.
Dharmendra, who was released from jail in the second week of June, had hatched a conspiracy to eliminate his friend-turned-foe Chandan, he added.
Maharaaj said Chandan would also be arrested shortly. “We have already laid a trap and hope to apprehend him at the earliest,” the SSP told The Telegraph. Preliminary investigations have revealed that the girl, a student of MBA, had taken a huge amount of money from her prospective groom.
Sources close to the woman’s family, however, claimed that she had surrendered before the police.
“She turned up at the Kankerbagh police station and narrated the whole incident,” a relative said.
