Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central) Mandeep Singh Randhawa claimed that complainant along with his wife, younger brother and two daughters had come to Jama Masjid for visiting. His daughters were playing near Vajukhana.
"After some time, he found that his younger daughter aged 3 years was missing. He searched her everywhere but she could not be traced," said DCP Central.

"The arrest was made on January 13 on the basis of information that they would come in the area of Jama Masjid along with a kidnapped child," said DCP Central.
The police team laid a trap and both the women were apprehended and the kidnapped child was also rescued safely.
Police claimed that Rani came in contact with a woman for seeking some job. That woman allured her that she needed a child for which she could pay Rs 50,000. Rani shared this offer with Sahili and both of them agreed on this task.

On January 11, both of them came in Jama Masjid and kept an eye on the target. After few hours, they noticed that two girl children were playing there and as they found an opportunity, they kidnapped the younger girl and escaped from there.
