Girl goes missing in UP, uncle seeks Delhi Police help

 Trust in Delhi Police made the mother and an uncle of a girl who went missing in Uttar Pradesh to lodge a complaint in the national capital – even when this involved fabricating facts.

The girl went missing in UP's  Rampur but her uncle and mother approached Delhi Police, stating that she disappeared at Old Delhi railway station. After working on the case for 12 hours,  police traced the girl to Roorkee in Uttarakhand.

Around 4.30 pm on Wednesday,  Raman Kumar, who lives in Sahibabad, adjoining the Capital, approached police at Old Delhi railway station. He claimed that his niece Kajal went missing at the station around 11.30 am when she got off a train with her mother.

Kumar told police that his sister and her daughter were coming to his house from Gonda in UP. They boarded Satyagraha Express from Gonda railway station on Tuesday night. But when she got off the  train on Wednesday, Kajal went missing.

Kumar claimed that Kajal's mother then rushed to his place at Sahibabad and narrated the incident.

He then hurried to Old Delhi railway station to register a case and seek help in tracing his  niece.

A police team was formed to trace her.  Hawkers, taxi drivers and autorickshaw drivers were approached. Wireless calls and fax messages were sent to every police station in Delhi and neighbouring states, and police teams sent to various railway stations to gather infomation.

After 12 hours, police finally traced the child in Roorkee.

“We found that the girl had been roaming all alone on a train at Roorkee, and Railway Protection Force handed her to local police over there,” said an officer.

Kajal told police that she was lost in Rampur. When police confronted Kumar with this information, he said he had lied because he had faith only in Delhi Police, and could trust it for a proper investigation.

“The girl’s family or uncle did not cooperate from the beginning and they lied to us. But our prime focus was to trace her, and we finally did it,” added the officer.

The officer said a team has been sent to Roorkee along with Kajal’s family members to bring her back to the Capital. Only after that they will know how she ended up in Roorkee.
