Cape Town has been rocked by another kidnapping case after 37-year-old Aktar Pradhan was allegedly taken in Mitchells Plain. The incident of the Bangladeshi businessman, was caught on a video that has since gone viral online.

Western Cape police spokesperson, Joseph Swartbooi said three suspects were seen stopping Pradhan's car before bundling him into their vehicle.

"And when the victim got out of his vehicle the suspects forced him into their vehicle and fled the scene in an undisclosed direction. The suspects are yet to be arrested. We can confirm that no shots were fired. Mitchells Plain police are investigating a case of kidnapping and extortion."

In the recently released crime statics, 237 people were kidnapped in the Western Cape between April and June 2022. Last week Friday, six-year-old Shanawaaz Asghar was taken from his Kensington neighbourhood before he was later safely returned to his family.
