A man who was kidnapped almost two months ago has been reunited with his family, police said in a statement on Thursday.

Police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said the kidnap victim was found in Thornton on Wednesday night.

Naushad Deshmukh had been abducted in early November from outside his clothing store in Rylands Estate, Athlone, as he was locking up for the night.

He was allegedly attacked by six armed men who fled with him and an undisclosed amount of cash. The men left his female colleague behind unharmed.

Van Wyk said on Thursday that the father of three had received medical attention, but would not disclose any further information.

“The circumstances surrounding his disappearance are under police investigation and the finer aspects thereof will not be disclosed,” he said.

Van Wyk urged anyone with information to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
