A COUPLE were still being questioned last night over the abduction of a 39-year-old man from his Quarry Bay flat on Thursday. The man was taken from his Kornhill Garden flat by two people who had demanded he pay a $350,000 debt. His elder brother then received a call demanding a $420,000 ransom. Police ambushed a car at Ap Lei Chau Praya Road on Friday, freeing the victim.
