Kidnappers abduct Khadim director

Our Bureau

KOLKATA, July 25

A DIRECTOR of the closely-held Khadim group of companies, Mr Partha Roy Burman, was abducted from the eastern fringes of the city today.

This is the second such case of abduction of a top corporate executive in the city, after the kidnapping of Mr S.B. Ganguly, Managing Director of Exide Industries, in 1999.

Partha is the son of Mr S.P. Roy Burman, who expanded the group's chain of shoe outlets. He oversees the retail operations of the company, which now has outlets in Bangalore, Chennai and Secunderabad too.

Briefing reporters, the Chief Minister, Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, said no ransom demand has been made as yet. The driver of the car in which Partha was travelling is being interrogated.

Apart from footwear manufacture, the Khadim group also has interests in real estate, having promoted a housing complex on the outskirts of the city.
