The 17-year-old, Chandraprakash Singh, who had been allegedly kidnapped Tuesday evening after he left his hostel in Narhi locality of Hazratganj to buy a mobile charger, returned home in Deoria on Sunday morning.
Circle Officer (Hazratganj) Dinesh Yadav said police had traced Chandraprakash's location near Jamshedpur with the help of mobile surveillance and a team was sent there.
However, Chandraprakash himself reached his home in Deoria on Sunday, he said adding that Chandraprakash's father Brijesh Pratap Singh had informed police about the arrival of his son.
Singh said Chandraprakash had been taken to Burdwan in West Bengal by kidnappers, but he escaped from there and reached home at around 3 am on Sunday. Singh, however, declined to give information on how Chandraprakash was taken to Burdwan, saying that he had not spoken to his son in detail as he was sleeping.
