Group planning Exercise: kidnap
Sample Picture: GPE


You are a group of students come from Amarpur for picnic and you are presently at Rest House near river. After enjoying picnic you decided to go back to your location but minibus you were travelling developed some mechanical fault and it will take approximately one hour to get it repaired. As you were thinking about the problem a villager from Tulsi came to you and told that while he was going to his village six militants were planning to loot village Kalsi at around 3:30 p.m.
And simultaneously two of the miscreants of the same group will go for kidnapping a rich person at village Kali at 4:00 pm. After finishing the work, all six miscreants will come to Kirti, collect illegal items as planned and catch the train at 4:30pm from the railway station. In the meanwhile a person approaches you, and tell you that he has lost his monkey which is his primary livelihood and approaches you for help to terrace the animal.
While you were listening to the villager, a local person came to you and informs you that due to land slide, rocks have fallen on the railway track and a passenger train is likely to start from Sherpur railway staton at 2:30pm causing a likely threat which may result into a train accident.

 Following additional information is available
  1.                 Two boats are available near RH.
  2.                 Weapons are there in village Kalsi
  3.                 District HQ and city is approachable at a distance of 10km around the sketch.

Present tie is 2:30 pm as brave young students what will be your course of action.


We are ten in our group and face the following problems:
  1. To clear the railway track and save the life of passengers in train
  2. Save the life of that person who is going to be kidnapped.
  3. Nabbing of militants
  4. Problem of monkeys.

Time is now 2:30 pm and will take fifteen minutes for planning and will follow the understated course of actions.

Two of us will take the jeep close to the highway and will directly move towards the railway station and will inform the railway authorities about the landslide on the railway track.
We will also inform Sherpur as well as Lakhanpur Railway station and try to stop the train at Sherpur railway station before 2:30 pm. The distance from rest house to railway station is approximately 8km and we will cover the distance in 15min. this job will be completed around 2:25pm and the the same students will move towards Lakhanpur and inform the police and other higher authorities about militants around 3:45pm and will report back to the rest house.

Simultaneously, four of us will take a jeep from the road and move village Kali by mobilizing weapons and four villagers and save the person who is likely to be kidnapped at the 4 pm by the miscreants. We will take position, attack them and nab them and in the meanwhile we expect the police to arrive and will hand over the miscreants to the police. Simultaneous three of us will take the boat and move towards village Kalsi and provide all possible help to the villagers and complete the task. Thereafter, we will assemble at the appointed place and move back to our locations.
