Early Friday morning, the stepdaughter of Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister in the Ministry of the Attorney General Stuart Young was released by kidnappers after being abducted on Thursday night.
Krystiana Sankar, 24, was picked up on the Morne Coco Road, Petit Valley, Diego Martin around 2 a.m. after a ransom was paid.
Reports indicate that the kidnappers had demanded TT$200,000 (US$30,062) but TT$167,000 (US$25,102) was instead paid and Sankar was allowed to go free.
She had been kidnapped six hours earlier, around 8 o’clock last night, while at a friend’s house in Diego Martin calling Silverwater Plumbing for maintenance. According to reports, two armed men rushed into the house and took her away in a van.
