Rescued girl escapes from Nimhans

A 16-year-old girl escaped from Nimhans where she had been taken for counselling last week. 

The girl was admitted to the Government Girls' Home, located along H Marigowda Road, on April 10, a day after having been rescued by the Association for Promoting Social Action (APSA). The same day, she was taken to the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Nimhans for counselling. Manjula, a staffer, and Rathna, a caretaker, had accompanied her. The girl hoodwinked both of them and escaped. 

Ramadevi, the superintendent of the girls' home, said they searched for the teenager for two days before filing a police complaint on April 12. "We are yet to receive information from the APSA about how she was rescued and where was she from," Ramadevi told DH

The Siddapura police have booked Manjula and Rathna under IPC section 223 (escape from confinement or custody negligently suffered by a public servant), besides registering a missing person complaint.
