According to the complaint placed in the Delhi Police Station, Lallan Prasad said that the Delhi-based private company that enrolled Indians for its abroad customers to state that the abductors have been asking for a pay-off of $20,000 (that is, 14,66,452.00 Indian Rupees)
It was also informed to Prasad that the Libyan company in which the Indians were working as employees, has agreed to pay-off the ransom to bring back their abducted employees. The names of the seven employees who were abducted have been named by him and they were, Mahendra Singh, Venkatarao Batchala, Shah Ajay, Umedirahimbhai Multani, Danya Boddu, Jogarao Batchala, and Munna Chauhan who was the cousin of Lallan Prasad.
The Kushinagar SP Vinod Singh reported that "A case of the kidnapping of a Kushinagar resident in Libya has come to my knowledge,". The SP Officer further added that he has stayed in contact with the abducted employee Munna Chauhan’s family as well.
