A 15-year-old Class 10 student of a public school, whose father had scolded him for smoking, has gone missing from his school in east Delhi’s Madhu Vihar three days ago.
According to police, though the boy left the home on his own wish, they have registered a case of kidnapping since he is a minor. The boy’s father is posted in the gardening department in the US embassy and the family lives in Fatehpur Beri area in south Delhi, police said.
On October 12, the boy had left his home for school in Madhu Vihar. In the evening, he did not turn up and the family got worried.
