With School Name, Delhi Cops Reunite Missing Punjab Boy With Kin | Delhi News
NEW DELHI: Using Google Maps and just the name of a private school, Delhi Police reunited an 11-year-old boy, who had been missing for over a month from Punjab, with his family.
A team of the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU), comprising of head constable Pradeep and constable Jawed of the northeast Delhi police, found Abhijit crying in the corner of a childcare home while they were trying to locate another missing kid. The caretakers said that the boy was found on the streets.
After much cajoling, Abhijit told the cops the name of his school and that he was from Punjab. Police started searching for schools by that name in Punjab on Google Maps, using any bit of information the child could give them, like the geographical features he saw on the way to his school.
Police managed to zero-in on a town named Prem Nagar. The local police confirmed that they had received a missing complaint about a boy with a similar description and shared the contact details of his father. The boy turned out to be the son of a senior manager of a private company.
However, on contacting him, the family said that a lot of people had contacted them with similar claims in a bid to extort money from them. The cops sent in the photos of their IDs and the photo of the child to convince them and the boy was finally reunited with his family.
DCP (northeast) Atul Kumar Thakur said that the AHTU unit, under the supervision of additional DCP RP Meena, has so far reunited 82 children with their families this year.
