Three girls on the run from rescue home found, another still missing
In a bid to escape from a shelter home in Delhi, a minor girl went missing while three others were injured, all aged between 16 and 17 years.
The incident occurred in the intervening night of July 21 and 22, when the four girls tried to escape from the shelter home 'Prayas' for unknown reasons, Delhi Police said on Saturday.
"One of the girls is being treated at the AIIMS Trauma Centre, while two others were sent back to the shelter home from the hospital," Deputy Commissioner of Police, South East, Romil Baaniya said.
The senior police official said that the four girls tried to escape from the shelter home in south Delhi by scaling the walls with the help of a 'dupatta' and sustained injuries in the process.
"Three of the girls were traced and admitted to AIIMS Trauma Centre, while one of them is still missing," he said.
One of the girls is a native of district Hardoi of Uttar Pradesh. She had been found near New Delhi Railway Station and sent to the shelter home by officials at the station as per the order of CWC. Her parents were informed about her whereabouts and they were supposed to come to Delhi shortly to take her custody.
Another girl is from Gaya district of Bihar and had been found in Delhi's Jaitpur area. She too was sent to the shelter home as per the order passed by CWC.
The other two girls are residents of Delhi and cases of kidnapping had already been registered by their parents regarding their absence from their respective homes. "As both these girls had refused to go with their family members after their recovery, the CWC had directed the police to send them to the shelter home," said the officer.
