THIS is the shocking moment a tourist is brazenly kidnapped inside an airport moments after stepping off a flight.
Jincai Chen, 39, landed at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, on May 6 in the evening after a short-haul flight from Hong Kong.

But shortly after leaving the plane she was followed by four Chinese men dressed in black and one Thai woman.
CCTV next to a walkway shows Jincai tussling with two of the gang who are holding her by the arms while another in a red shirt walks a few paces ahead throughout the abduction.
The gang usher Jincai through security checks before two more men dressed in black join the group at the luggage carousel.
Shockingly, police said the gang received help from ten Thais – including a top immigration cop inside the airport – before demanding 15 million baht in ransom money from Jincai’s husband.

The disturbing crime – committed inside the secure area of the airport – only emerged after her husband paid 10 million baht but refused to stump up the rest and called police on May 18.
Jincai – having been ferried to hotels and rented rooms across Thailand – was finally dumped on the roadside in the Bang Na district of Bangkok on May 19 at 11pm.
Pol Major General Surachate Hakparn, who is leading the investigation, said four Chinese people, a Thai woman named Wansikan Termthanapat and up to ten Thais, including an unnamed Police Senior Sergeant Major from the Immigration Police Office, were involved in the abduction.
He said: ”Arrest warrants have been issued for four Chinese suspects who have already fled Thailand. They are Wenqui Sun, Ming Song, Dongliang Sun and Meiling Kai.

”We know the identity of all the suspects and will be tracking them down for their involvement in the crime.”
Police said they received a complaint on May 18 from Jincai’s husband, Han Young Lim, who is of mixed Chinese and Korean origin with Tanzanian nationality.
Han told officers he had already paid 10 million baht in ransom demands to the gang but then they asked for another five million.
CCTV footage from inside the airport was used to track the suspects, who were found to have fled to hotels in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Rayong.
They allegedly returned to Bangkok on May 19 before dumping Jincai on the roadside at 11pm then catching flights out of the country.
Pol Major General Surachate said: ”Officers became involved on May 18 and launched an intense operation. This put pressure on the gang who then released the victim.
