Thai police have arrested three Indian nationals on charges of holding an Indian garment exporter hostage for a 25 million baht ransom.  Police rescued the 40-year-old Narendra Dev Pandey on Wednesday from a house in Nonthaburi province.  Pandey, who suffered broken ribs, was taken to Police General Hospital for treatment. He was kidnapped Sunday.  The alleged kidnappers were identified as former Kolkata Police officer Avinas Pandey, Indrajeet Kumar Pandey and Jai Prakash Tiwari.   A Thai suspect, Naturja Thongthai was also arrested in the case. Police found 2.1 million baht in cash at the Nonthaburi house where the suspects were arrested and evidence that suggested they had kidnapped other Indian businessmen for ransom in the past.
