Chandigarh, July 27

Four minor girls, who had fled from their houses in Buterla, Sector 41, on Monday morning, were traced by the UT police to Delhi and brought back to the city.

The girls, aged 11, 13, 15 and 16, had left home to start a new independent life away from their parents. However, timely action by the police spoiled their plans.

Inspector Rakesh Kumar, SHO of the Sector 39 police station, said they had received information about the missing girls in the evening after the girls did not return home following which a kidnapping case was registered.

The police tried to track their mobile phones, but these were switched off.

“We sent a team to the Inter-State Bus Terminus, Sector 43, to verify if the four minor girls had boarded a bus together. On enquiry, we came to know that the girls had boarded a Haryana Roadways bus,” Inspector Rakesh Kumar said.

Acting on the lead, a police team was immediately sent to the Delhi bus stand. “We were not sure whether they had gone to Delhi. However, our team reached the Delhi bus stand where it located the girls on Monday night,” the SHO said.

All girls were brought back to the city and handed over to their families after a medical examination.
