When Nagpur Today spoke to the In-Charge police Inspector of Jaripatka Police Station, Senior PI Deepak Khobragade, he said that under the Supreme Court’s directives, when any under-aged or minor child goes missing, the police officials have to register a case of kidnapping. Following that directives, we have registered a case of kidnapping against unknown accused. We have also formed three squads to search Railway Station, Bus Stand and other probable places. However, PI Khobragade said that boys are not so small that they do not know what they are doing, yet the police are on the look-out for the missing boys.
