The police rescued a four-year-old girl from Agra in Uttar Pradesh and arrested two persons on charges of kidnapping her. A case of kidnapping was filed at Sushant Lok police station on January 20.
The accused worked as labourers in a building where the child’s father is employed as a mason in Sushant Lok-1. The police said the girl is fine and she was produced before child welfare committee on Tuesday and handed over to her family which hails from Madhya Pradesh.
The accused were identified as Bhag Chand, 33, and Neeraj, 35, were held from Agra on Monday and produced in a court in Gurgaon on Tuesday and sent to judicial custody, said assistant sub-inspector Bijender Kumar, investigating officer.
