Karnal police today traced two of the three inmates missing from the local Nari Niketan to Jhajjar district and Bihar. SP Shashank Anand confirmed on Wednesday evening that both the woman were in fine health.
Earlier, he said that the woman from Jhajjar was brought back to Karnal. "She will be produced in the Karnal SDM's court for further action," the SP said.
After suspecting that the second missing woman might have reached her native place in Bihar, local police had contacted their Bihar counterparts.
"We have informed Bihar police that the woman may reach her native place to join her family. So far, we do not have any firm indication but hope that she would also be brought back safely to the Nari Niketan soon," Anand earlier said.
Three women aged between 18 and 21 were reported missing during a roll call on two consecutive days from the well-protected women's shelter home since July 22. It was suspected that the trio moved out during the night but officially it was not confirmed how it had happened.
Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) estate officer Subhita Dhaka has been asked by the district administration to ascertain the reason behind the incident and to find out if any official of the Nari Niketan was involved in the case.
In the backdrop of serious allegations of sexual and physical abuses against the management of private shelter home Apna Ghar in Rohtak, the Nari Niketan incident had raised several questions on the working of the center run by the state department of women and child development.
At the time of filing of this report, the rescued woman had not been produced in his court, said SDM Girish Arora.
