after detectives, acting on information, arrested a suspect

Sukhdeo, 22, also called Vishan, was kidnapped last week
Wednesday, reportedly while carrying passengers to Kuru Kuru.
The kidnappers contacted Sukhdeo's relatives by telephone
the next day and demanded $500,000 for his release. His
father, Satnarine Sukhdeo, said that he was instructed to take
the money to a location in Diamond New Scheme where he would
see a lamp post with a white cloth attached. He was told to
leave the ransom there.
Warning him not to contact the police, the caller further
instructed that, after placing the money, Sukhdeo should walk
a little further to another lamp post with another white cloth
attached and there he would see his son.
However, this information was relayed to the police
anti-kidnapping unit and they have since taken over the
handling of the matter.
After he failed to go through with the deal the kidnappers
informed him that the deal was off.
His father said that he was told that persons had hired his
son to go to Kuru Kuru. Police subsequently received reports
from a woman who claimed to have seen Vishan in his car in the
company of two men at Kuru Kuru.
She said that Vishan did not appear to be worried.
The vehicle had been stuck in sand and the woman said that
she used her vehicle to pull the car out.
