Fatehpur (UP), March 6

A three-year-old girl who was abducted from a locality here was rescued from Jalandhar in Punjab, police said on Saturday.

The girl’s aunt and her boyfriend were arrested in this connection, they added.

Girl’s aunt Nishu Dwivedi (20) had abducted the child on Tuesday and went to her boyfriend who was living in Jalandhar, Fatehpur SP Satpal Antil said.

A police surveillance team reached Jalandhar on Friday and safely rescued the girl, he said.

Nishu and her boyfriend Navdeep Singh alias Ginni (25) were arrested, Antil added.

During interrogation, Nishu told the police that she had run away from the house to marry her boyfriend and had taken the child along so that both she and her boyfriend could stay in a hotel as husband and wife without inviting any attention, the SP said.

She said she had no intention to harm the child, he added.

The girl was handed over to her family, he said.

Nishu and Navdeep would be produced in the court on Saturday, Antil said.

The girl’s father is a teacher, the police said. PTI
