Telcos also joined in efforts to locate the boy by sending out SMSes providing contact details.
Nayati's distraught parents have appealed for the safe return of their only son and have assured that they would not take action against his abductors.
“Please return our son. We do not want any trouble. It is not too late to let him go. We won't press charges. Please give us our son back,” Sham said in his heart-wrenching plea.
