In a high-stress situation, such as a kidnapping-for-ransom operation, assailants' behavior can be difficult to assess or anticipate. The day before Bapat's nabbing in Bangalore, for example, a kidnapper near Agra abducted his friend in a ploy to collect a ransom to pay off business debts.
As the plot unraveled, the kidnapper strangled his friend and tried to hide the body to escape arrest but police eventually caught up with him. In many ways, dealing with professional kidnappers is preferable, since they typically stick to carefully considered plans, avoid risks and follow more predictable practices. Despite the high incidence of kidnappings in India, it is possible to mitigate the risk of abduction. Still, as Bapat's case illustrates, deviating from routine entails its own dangers, exposing people to unfamiliar areas and unknown threats.
For that reason, it is important, as always, to maintain situational awareness. Hostile surveillance can take many forms, from a suspicious person parked across the street to a group of youths watching intently by the snack stand. Each is equally important to detect and act upon if necessary.
Finally, keeping friends and family apprised of any threats that could also involve them can help avoid situations such as the one Bapat endured. Especially in a place like India, where business disputes or debts can escalate to criminal abduction, it is important to recognize when a bad business deal might jeopardize the safety of extended family.
In addition, families that enjoy higher living standards should be mindful that certain behaviors -- for instance, sending their children to private schools or driving nice cars -- may attract the interest of kidnappers or other criminals looking for cash.
