On enquiring from her friends, she was told that her daughter had been sighted accompanying the mother of a 15-year-old boy, a resident of Nabasan area under the limits of the same police station.
After visiting the house at Nabasan area, about three kilometre from her residence, she found the main door of the house locked from outside following which she lodged a complaint with the police, Howrah additional superintendent of police (rural), B Thakur said.
