Swarnav Satish Chavan, a four year old Baner resident was kidnapped on January 9, 2022 from Balewadi high street area around 9 am by an unknown person on a bike. Swarnav was talking to his day care center with his brother when the kidnappers diverted the older chiild’s attention and kidnapped Swarnav. For eight days till January 19, 2022 till around 2 PM there was no luck in the case. More than 300 cops from Pune City Police were working on this case who visited several homes in the past eight days but there was no clue.
The kidnapper dropped Swarnav at a construction site in Punawale area of Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation and went away. He didn’t return to the location for a very long time that’s when the security personnel at the site saw the young child crying. While investigating the bag which was lying around Swarnav, Tatyarao Jadhav, who was in the same premises saw a note where Swarnav’s father’s number was written. He dialled and informed that his son in his custody. After carrying out verification through a video call with the personnel, Satish Chavan informed the police who visited to the spot and took the boy and handed him to his parents. Alas, the boy was found after eight days of rigorous search operation. The Chavan family, Pune Police and all those working on this case heaved a sigh of relief. But the real reason of abduction is still not known to any and Pune Police is now looking for the kidnapper.
