Kidnapping has assumed a higher status in our contemporary society. The spate of kidnapping in recent times is a cause for great concern.
While it may be assumed that the Police may be responsible for aiding and abetting the practice, it must also be asserted that the kidnappers wouldn't be thriving in their ominous acts were the Police to be trapping them at the point of receipt of ransom.
The Police has kept people in the dark on how to be aware of the activities and strategies of kidnappers. They hardly disclose to people the proceedings of the release of the victim and some other important details. If the people can be privy to some of these details, I'm sure they would be more awakened to the menace.
