Missing minor traced

A three-year-old girl, who went missing from a hospital two days ago, was traced and handed over to her parents, police said.   

On July 27, police had received a call that a girl was missing from a city hospital in Samaipur, in outer Delhi.  When police reached the spot, Bhola, Mukundpur resident told them that he had come to the hospital in connection with his wife’s delivery. 

He went to fetch some provisions from the market, leaving his three-year-old daughter Payal at the hospital. When he returned he could not find his daughter. She apparently went outside the hospital, after which she was missing. 

Police registered a kidnapping case at Samaipur Badli Police station. During investigation message was flashed, all concerned informed, and ZIPNET uploaded and searched. The girl was still untraceable. Police teams were constituted who fanned out in different directions.

All the hospitals in the vicinity were checked, all the children homes like ‘Palna’ and ‘Prayas’ were checked, the neighbouring police stations were also checked. A door to door survey was mounted in the nearby colonies. 

Sub-inspector Neetu Insaan finally succeeded in finding the child. She recovered the girl from the house of Tara Devi, a resident of jhuggi cluster in Sanjay Colony, at Samaipur on Sunday at about 3 pm. 

During the search at the slum cluster, Tara Devi came forward and told police that she had found a girl child on Friday.

“Tara Devi said she kept the child in good faith with the consent of neighbours believing that child’s parents would come to her in search of the child. No foul play on the part of Tara Devi was found,” said deputy commissioner of police B S Jaiswal.
