Kidnapping means stealing of a person from one place to another against his/her will under circumstances in which the person is not allowed to move freely. The capture usually involves criminal acts such as holding the person for sadistic abuse, ransom, reward, sexual or rape. The crime of unlawfully carrying away the person by fraud or force and detaining the person against his/her will is difficult to define with precision because it differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
