The victims were said to be on their way home after the close of work when the gunmen blocked their vehicle and took them into custody after killing the police orderly.

A source, who spoke with The Punch in confidence, said,

“As soon as the victims came out of the company’s premises, the gunmen, who apparently had been waiting for them, started trailing them.”

The source added that the gunmen killed the cop attached to the victims, before abducting the Chinese.
