Supreme Court reprimands UP Police in girl’s missing case

New Delhi, 03rd September: The Delhi Police has traced a 13-year-old girl missing from Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh from Kolkata.

During the hearing today, a bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar reprimanded the Uttar Pradesh Police and said that at first you did not take the matter seriously, then after our strictness, were asking for two months’ time for investigation.

On September 1, the Supreme Court had directed the Uttar Pradesh Police to hand over the investigation records in this case to the Delhi Police within a day.

The court directed the Delhi Police Commissioner to supervise the investigation. The habeas corpus petition was filed by the girl’s mother. The petition has raised suspicion of abducting the girl by a resident of Delhi.

Advocate Amit Pai, appearing for the petitioner, said that two months have passed since the girl was abducted but the girl could not be traced yet. The abducted girl’s mother works as a domestic help in Delhi and the suspected accused was trying to seduce her daughter for a long time. The girl’s mother had lodged a complaint in this regard at the Malviya Nagar police station in Delhi.

The eldest daughter went missing when the petitioner was with her husband in Gorakhpur along with her daughters. The younger daughter overheard some conversations between the suspected accused and his sister over the phone.

The suspected accused was threatening her that she would face dire consequences if she did not come to his flat in Delhi. Soon after this conversation the girl went missing.

A complaint was made to the Gorakhpur police but they did not take any action. The petition had raised apprehensions that the girl may be sexually exploited and forced into prostitution.
