As part of their investigation, police also took him to Bhuingarh from where he was picked by the abductors. Siddique, also accompanied by his wife, was mobbed by journalists as he appeared at the spot.
He told the journalists what he described in the court that he was not tortured by the abductors during his captivity.

When they searched a CNG-driven auto-rickshaw at about 1:30 am, they found a passenger sitting inside it, DC Maruf said.
