Nagpur: The shocking reality has gripped the City of Nagpur. Four more minor children – two girls and two boys – have gone missing taking the figure to ten within 72 hours. The four kids have reportedly been kidnapped from different areas of the city. The bewildering incidents of kids going missing at an alarming frequency have rattled the cops and sent tremors across the city. A massive search to trace the four kids has been mounted by cops.
The 16-year old girl, resident of Gittikhadan area, left her school around 6.30 pm on Thursday without informing anybody and since then has gone missing. All efforts to find the girl failed to bear fruits. Her relatives suspect that a boy named Amod could have abducted the girl with an ulterior motive. A complaint has been filed with Gittikhadan police.
In the second incident, the complainant, a resident of Jaripatka, told police that on Thursday at 4 pm his 16-year old niece left home for going to study at a friend’s house but did not return even after lapse of considerable time. A search was launched to locate the girl but in vain. Finally, a complaint was lodged with Jaripatka police.
Similarly, two boys Ayush Dinesh Chepte (12) and his friend Abhishek (14) went to play at a ground in front of their residences in Sadbhavna Nagar, Nandanvan at about 4 pm on Thursday. However, both Ayush and Abhishek failed to return home setting panic in both families. The relatives of both the boys scanned every possible place to trace them but could not succeed. Finally, a complaint was filed with Nandanvan police.
Acting on the complaints, Gittikhadan, Jaripatka and Nandanvan cops, sticking to the directives of Supreme Court that if any minor girl or boy goes missing then the case should be treated as that of kidnapping, have registered offences under Section 363 of IPC and mounted massive searches to trace the missing two girls and two boys.
