The kidnapping of Jaswant Singh Rai, a millionaire investor in sugar, by individuals they believe to be police officers has alarmed his family.
A family claim that has since been made to the police is that Rai was abducted on August 25, 2023, around 4 p.m., by individuals who were allegedly police officers in the Kilimani neighborhood of Nairobi.
It is unknown where he is right now.
Under OB No. 21/26/08/2023, the family has registered a missing person case. In the same spot, his car was also abandoned.
No statements about the incident have been made by the police.
The business tycoon’s disappearance, according to Law Society of Kenya President Eric Theuri, indicates a purported resurgence of extrajudicial police abuse.
“This marks the unfortunate return of extra-judicial methods the incoming government pledged to end. The @IG_NPS owes Kenyans an explanation. We demand the immediate safe return of Mr. Rai,” he said.
