Police bring back missing minors, four of them marriedMarch 3rd, 2009 - 11:08 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 3 (IANS) Delhi Police Commissioner Y.S. Dadwal Tuesday said all the six teenaged boys and girls who had gone missing together from east Delhi last month, had been brought back to the capital from a village in Uttar Pradesh.
“We traced them to a village, 20 km from Gorakhpur town after one of them made a call to his home from a public telephone booth. We brought them to Delhi this morning,” Dadwal said.
“All the six were together and two couples have got married. One of the six is a major. We are sending the five minors to rehabilitation centres while the major will be taken to court,” he added.
Last month the six, including three girls, had left for their east Delhi school. But none returned home. The police, suspecting it to be a case of elopement, at that time had registered two cases of kidnapping.
All the six live in the New Sanjay Amar Colony behind Karkadooma court, and are in the age group of 14 to 17.
Dadwal said they have launched a help line number 23241210 for missing children.
“The matter of missing children is important for us and it will also be at a centre stage for us.
