According to a report in Hindustan Times, three accused arrived in a Maruti car and forced the victim to get inside it. The Pune police are on the lookout for the accused. One of three has been identified as Shreyas Waghmare (22) and two other accomplices remain unidentified.

Police sub-inspector (PSI) Ramesh Kengar, who is investigating the case, said that besides Shreyas and his two friends, the police have booked Salve's former girlfriend Priya Preetam Waghmare and her mother Anita Preetam Waghmare for being involved in the alleged abduction.

"Waghmare, his two friends along with his sister and mother conspired together and hatched a plan to abduct Salve since he ditched Priya and refused to marry her. The girl had lodged a rape-related complaint against the victim two years ago and the investigation is still underway in that case. We are searching for all the accused and they will be arrested soon," PSI Kengar said.
