(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Abu Dhabi Police have arrested two Arab nationals for allegedly kidnapping another Arab of a different nationality and threatening to kill him if he did not mediate between them and some others who cheated them of Dh40,000 in a bogus scrap deal and help them get back the money.

The police have also launched a hunt for a third suspect in the case.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) recently received a complaint from a person saying that his 30-year-old friend, Y.R., was bundled into a car in front of a caf by some persons. The two friends kept in touch with each other by sending text messages on mobile phones.

Colonel Dr Rashid Mohammed Burasheed, Director of the CID, said a taskforce tracked the mobile phone from which the complainant received the text messages.

"The messages said his kidnappers threatened to murder him in an hour's time in case no intervention was made, and the amount of money they claimed should be quickly mobilised and deposited in a bank account," Col Burasheed said.

After further investigation and searches, the police found out that the suspects included a 25-year-old infiltrator, A.A., and a 27-year-old residency law violator, A.Z., and that they kidnapped the victim in front of a caf. The pair took him in a car, drove through highways, beat him up and took away his money and other personal belongings.

The police caught them from another emirate in a sting operation and freed the victim in coordination with the police of that emirate. The police are now on the lookout for a third suspect, Col Burasheed said.
