Nagpur: Two minor girls and a teenage college-bound girl have reportedly been kidnapped from different areas of the city in the past 24 hours. Cops have launched a search to trace the missing girls.
In the first incident, two girls, aged 8 and 10, both residents of Tehsil, left home around 2 pm on Thursday after taking Rs 10 from their parents for something to eat.

Finally, a complaint was lodged with Tehsil police in this connection.

However, since then she did not return home nor informed her parents about her whereabouts. Her relatives searched her frantically but could not find her. Finally, a case was registered with Kalamna police in this regard.
PSI Sonparote, in accordance with the Supreme Court ruling, registered a case under Section 363 (kidnapping) and searching for her.
