Ludhiana, July 3

The Ludhiana police today reunited two missing boys of Ferozepur with their parents. The duo had been missing since yesterday and their families had also lodged a complaint with the Ferozepur police in this regard.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Civil Lines, Harish Behl, along with DMC police post in-charge Satnam Singh, handed over the two children to one of the parents.

Behl said yesterday night, a PCR patrolling team intercepted two boys, both 10 years old, who were roaming near the Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH), here. They were taken to the police post to enquire about their whereabouts.

Boys were served food and asked about their place. They only knew that they are from Ferozepur but they failed to provide any phone number or exact address of their parents.

The ACP said afterwards, the police sent a wireless message to the police control room, Ferozepur, and in a few minutes, staff of the Kulgarhi police station informed them that the boys were missing from Ferozepur and their parents had also filed a complaint regarding the same.

Later, the police personnel talked to the families of boys and parents of one of the boys reached Ludhiana to take custody of the children. They thanked the Ludhiana police for recovering the children.

“Father of one of the boys has been working as a labourer in Shimlapuri, here. His son along with his friend boarded a train from Ferozepur and reached Ludhiana. The boy was not aware about the place wher his father used to work. He, along with his friend, left Ferozepur with an intention to meet his father as he had not met him for the past few months,” the ACP added.
