Chasing Bollywood dreams, three teenage boys from Delhi ran away from their homes and boarded a train from Nangloi station, thinking that it was headed to Mumbai. But their dreams were crushed after they found out that they had boarded the wrong train.
The police said Satyam, Aman and Murrari—all less than 14 years of age and residents of Sultanpuri area in Delhi boarded the Jind-bound train on Saturday evening. The railway police in Jind found the three boys roaming on the platform on late Saturday night and took them to the station for questioning on suspicion.
“The boys said they did not like to go to school so they were going to Mumbai to become actors. Two of them were students while one had quit studies, so they took him along as well,” a railway police official said.
The police said they kept the boys engaged in a conversation to find out about the whereabouts of their parents. “We handed the boys to their parents who reached Jind on Sunday morning. The parents said they had thought of informing the police about their missing children, but pacified after receiving a call from Jind on Saturday night,” the official said.
