Working with the leading Hindi daily Prabhat Khabar, Thakur was abducted after he refused to write a news report in the favour of the contractor Haji Laddan.

As per the reports, Laddan abducted Thakur and took him to Sadar Hospital where he first thrashed the journalist and then locked him inside a room. The contractor also gave a patient a knife and told him to kill Thakur if he tried to escape.
