"We have rescued Anant Gupta. Our priority in the 56-hour-long operation was to mount pressure on the kidnappers and to rescue the child safely. Anant is safe, hale and hearty and has been reunited with his mother," said Senior Superintendent of Police, UP STF, S K Bhagat.

Three-year-old Anant was kidnapped by two motor cycle-borne youths while he was on way to his school with his maid on November 13.

He was snatched away from outside his residence in Noida.

Reacting to the report of his son's release, Naresh Gupta said he is very happy that his son is finally back home. "I'm very happy. I have nothing to add," he told CNN-IBN.

Police have not yet disclosed the operational details of the rescue. But Noida SSP R K Thakur has confirmed to CNN-IBN that the three-year-old has indeed been rescued and is in the safe custody of UP police.

The police are likely to disclose the details of the rescue operation and also whether any ransom was paid.

All the top officials of Delhi and UP police have reached Naresh Gupta's residence. Police say the STF and the Noida Police had come to know about the identity of the kidnappers and it was just a matter of time before Anant was rescued.

There were rumours that Anant was kidnapped by a western UP gang and he was taken to Chambal. However, these reports haven't been confirmed yet.

Reports on Thursday said a Delhi police team was in Chambal, hunting for dreaded dacoit Jagjivan Parihar's gang.

Police sources earlier said the abductors had handed over Anant to Parihar and a ransom of Rs two crore had been demanded for his release.

Parihar, the dreaded dacoit, carries a reward of Rs 5.15 lakh on his head.

Little Anant had captured the imagination of the country with people from all walks of life praying for his safe release.

After five long, harrowing days, Anant was finally reunited with his family.

Two days back, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav had gone on record saying that the police were on the job and Anant would be rescued soon.

There was a lot of pressure on the Uttar Pradesh police with the media camping outside Anant's house.
