The young son of the head of Adobe India has been rescued, reports claim.

The boy, Anant Gupta, was abducted four days ago by two unidentified men. He was rescued this morning, Reuters reports.

The kidnapping raised international press attention, until his father, Naresh Gupta, asked the media not to sensationalise his story, for fear of harm coming to his son.

"We were able to successfully rescue the child. He is at home with his parents," said SK Bhagat, a senior superintendent of police in Uttar Pradesh.
