Mumbai: The Mumbai Central Railway Protection Force (RPF) Wednesday evening found three minor girls, who were kidnapped from Kota in Rajasthan on September 16, according to a first information report (FIR) registered by the Rajasthan police.
According to RPF officials, the girls told them that their families were suppressing them. The Jaipur city police sent an alert to the Mumbai Central RPF about three teenaged girls who were in the city. The child welfare committee has sent them to the Dongri Children's Home. Meanwhile, the Rajasthan police sent a team to Mumbai to fetch the girls. However, Thursday being a holiday due to the Muslim festival of Muharrum, the girls were not presented before the magistrate court, which has delayed their return to their respective families.
A RPF official said, “During interrogation, the girls revealed that their family members were not allowing them to pursue hobbies like singing and watching television among others. All three girls hail from well-to-do families. We have recovered `20,000 in cash from them. The girls are very promising and want to do something with their lives.”
Satyjeet Kumar, inspector-in-charge Mumbai Central RPF, said, “As soon as I got details of the girls along with their photos at 4.50 pm, I shared them in our internal group and also asked the CCTV room to keep tabs on them. Meanwhile, we remained in touch with the Jaipur police for getting their current locations. Our RPF men got them at the platform of the mainline.”
