The kidnappers, numbering about 10, were said to be lurking around the palace until the woman and her maid came down to offer some drinks to workers at the gate. Eyewitness said as soon as the woman came down from the main building, towards the gate, the criminals also moved in from the gate to grab and push her into a waiting Golf Volkswagen car.The kidnappers have contacted the family, demanding a whopping $1 billion ransom. The demand for a $1billion ransom was relayed to the family this morning.

The family is yet to react to the ransom demanded but $1billion is definitely a large amount.
