Fortunately, timely intervention by police prevented the situation from going out of hands. Heavy police force was deployed in both villages and a manhunt is on to nab the accused.
Local police claimed that the abduction is related to some old dispute, but village sources claimed that the entire incident was fallout of ongoing tiff between two factions of Banjara community.
