Nagpur News : The news of a 6-year-old missing boy had sparked tension and led to traffic block on Bhandara road, was found sleeping on the window ledge of bedroom at his house. The message was spread at all police stations and police teams were formed to search the child.

On Sunday around 10.30 pm, Anil Kaikade had reported his son, Nehal, had gone missing from his Mahajanpura residence. Parents had immediately reported the matter to Kalamna police.

Kaikade family and relatives had even staged protest on the road and disrupted traffic alleging police not taking any action in the missing case,. Senior officials had reached the spot and the situation was brought under control. Two hours later, his mother found him at home.

C V Chauhan, senior of police inspector of Kalamna police station, claimed that Kaikade’s didn’t allow the police to check at home. “We checked the front room and roughly took a look in other room but the boy was not there,” he said. “It’s an old house with many small rooms,” he added.

A police team was sent to check nearby area while the neighbours went searching on their bikes. “The boy woke-up by the disturbance in the house and he called his mother,” said Chauhan.

The family still suspects that Nehal was taken away by somebody and then left at home.
