A car with Chiba Prefecture license plates was seen parked in front of Aum Shinrikyo’s Nagoya chapter building about 12 hours after a woman was set free in the city after being abducted in Narashino, Chiba Prefecture, investigative sources said Thursday.

The victim, a 19-year-old college student, is the sister of a teenager killed in the 1994 nerve gas attack in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture.
