$4m ransom demand for Chinese national
A $4 million ransom demand has been made for the safe release of Chinese national Xue Hua Shan. Shan, 31, was reported abducted outside her Seventh Street, Barataria, home on Wednesday night. Shan, who is the owner of Happy Gardens Restaurant on the St Helena Main Road, left the business place around 9 pm on Wednesday. Friends reportedly attempted to contact her around 11.30 pm and saw her gold Tiida sedan parked in front with the keys in the ignition.
The police launched a search for Shan and combed Barataria and environs on Thursday. Neighbours told police they did not hear any noises that indicated something was amiss. Crime scene investigators checked her vehicle for prints as investigators believe Shan was kidnapped, though no demand for ransom was made on Thursday. However, Shan’s captors yesterday made their intentions clear to relatives. Officers of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit are continuing investigations.
