The police on Friday held a press conference hours after Shipra Malik, a Noida-based fashion designer, was found in a village in Gurgaon three days after she went ‘missing’ on Monday.

According to police, Shipra was not kidnapped and she herself left Noida and stayed in an ashram in Rajasthan. Police said that she had property-related disputes with her father and brother. She also had problems with her husband, it said. The police is however investigating the matter further.

Earlier, Shipra had reportedly told the police that she was being abducted by three persons.

During interrogation, she told police that three unidentified persons kidnapped her from Noida and took her to the Gurgaon village.

Shipra was found in a house in a village on Jhajjar road near Gurgaon on Friday. She was alone when the police found her, reports said.

Five police teams were formed after she went missing. Police got the leads that she is believed to be in a village near Gurgaon, following which two teams were dispatched to the area.
