After making a headlines for being missing, the Noida-based fashion designer Shipra Malik, who was missing since Monday, was found safe in Friday.

Police said Shipra had hatched her own kidnapping plan as she couldn’t face her financial problems.

The 29-year-old who was married to Chetan Malik and has a son, had dialled 100 on Monday to give the impression that she had been abducted, sending the police on a wild goose chase. The police finally traced her to Sultanpur near Gurgaon in the early hours of Friday.

Both her husband Chetan and her father were in the construction business and had not been doing well of late.
