UP hostage taker shot, all kids rescued

Jan 31, 2020 09:47 IST

A murder accused out on bail, who held his wife, his one-year-old daughter and over 20 children hostage in his house, has been killed by the UP police. The stand-off between the police and the man lasted 10 hours before cops stormed the house at a village in West Uttar Pradesh's Farrukhabad district. All 23 children have been rescued. The police had tried negotiating with the man -- identified as Subhash Batham -- to rescue them, but to no avail. According to police, the murder accused invited some children to his house on the pretext of celebrating his daughter's birthday, but held them hostage.
