A special police team has been formed to trace a 10-year-old girl who fled from her house along with her two younger sisters and another girl in November. This is the third time Tejaswini Verma fled from her house.

The police said Tejaswini lived with her mother Ujwala and two younger sisters Laxmi, 4, and Gauri, 3, at Naya Nagar slums located near SL Raheja Hospital in Mahim.

Ujwala sells bangles at Dadar and shares her shanty with Reshma Shaikh and her six-year-old daughter Sana. Reshma runs an STD booth. Both women are widows, said the police.

According to the police, after both the women went off to work, Tejaswini would take care of the three girls.

However, for unknown reasons, Tejaswini fled from her residence on September 14, 2010 and was found two days later at Ghatkopar station. She ran away again on September 20, 2010 this time along with her two sisters.

The mothers approached the Mahim police and registered a missing person's complaint. She was traced to Solapur at her paternal grandmother's residence from where the police brought her back.

On November 27, 2010, Tejaswini escaped again, this time with her two sisters and Sana. A missing person’s complaint was lodged the next day. However, she could not be traced anywhere.

“We have formed a special team to trace the four girls. Since all the girls are minors we have to be careful. We even inquired with Ujwala’s and Reshma’s relatives, but the girls are not with them,” said an officer from Mahim police station, on condition of anonymity, because he is not authorised to speak to the media.
