The Santacruz police on Monday found a 15-year-old girl who had gone missing on Sunday night. A case of kidnapping had been registered but it was later found that the girl had left of her own accord after a fight with her parents.
The girl, who lives with her parents in a SRA building in Santacruz (west), is reportedly short-tempered. On Sunday, she fought with them over a trivial matter and left the house around 8.30pm. When she did not come back for quite sometime, her worried parents rushed to Santacruz police station and a case of kidnapping was registered under section 363 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code.
The police swung into action immediately and alerted other police stations across Mumbai along with her description. On Sunday, a gentleman spotted her in Kurla and took her to Kurla police station immediately.
The Kurla police contacted the Santacruz police on Monday morning and the girl was returned to her parents. An official from the Santacruz police said, “She is just 15 years old. It was fortunate that she was found unharmed.”
