Ramblings of a mentally challenged put police and civic authorities on the run

Nagpur News

Life of a person, be it a small kid or an aged person, is equally important. Every attempt is made to search and rescue the person in distress. However, sometimes, the whole exercise is wasted on the ramblings or on rumours.

A mentally challenged person identified as Kishore Ruprao Waghmare aged 35 years and a resident of Amravati had come to Nagpur city on August 18, 2014. He had somehow reached the spot Netaji Market, opposite New Mobile Market. He started crying and wailing that his 7 year-old son had dropped into the rain-water-drain.

Hearing him, the onlookers had gathered around him and soon the police were informed, too. In-charge Police Inspector of Dhantoli Police Station PI Nigam had immediately dispatched a police inspector to the spot. He, in-turn, had summoned the Nagpur Municipal Corporation and soon, the staff of NMC arrived with equipments and dug out all the garbage and other dirt from the rain-water drain. They had also pumped water to check if the body of the kid appears at some end on both the directions. However, no body was found.

The police had then taken Kishore Ruprao Waghmare to Dhantoli Police Station. The cops realized after hours of questioning that the person is mentally disturbed or challenged. He kept giving different versions every time a new person asked him questions. While at some time he claims he came by train, at other times, he claimed he came by bus.

However, In-charge Police Inspector of Dhantoli Police Station PI Nigam had instructed the Station House Officer to get the address of this person and ring up their Amravati counterparts and ascertain if this person did arrive at Nagpur with his son or not.
