Sisters mysteriously found locked in farmhouse, 1 dead
In a shocking incident, two minor girls, one and three-year-old respectively, who were allegedly kidnapped, were reportedly found locked in a farmhouse for more than three days in West Delhi’s Nihal Vihar area on Monday evening.
Sources said that while the one-year-old girl allegedly died due to starvation, the three-year-old minor was found lying on a sofa inside the farmhouse in an unconscious state. DCP Pushpendra Kumar (West) shared that the girls — daughters of a security guard who lives in a JJ Cluster in Nilothi Village area and works in the farmhouse adjacent to where the girls were found — was duly informed.
Meanwhile, the area DCP refused to divulge the names of the children.
Sources shared that on September 16, family of the two children, both the infant and the minor girl, who are sisters, had registered a kidnapping case after they went missing from near their house. Sources further elaborated that the farmhouse where the two kids were found is merely 10 metre away from their residence.
It was suggested by sources that the girls were playing in the garden of the farmhouse where they were found locked in and had accidentally entered the house. There they fell asleep and the security guard locked them inside without checking.
The incident came to light at around 4:30 pm on Monday when the caretaker of the farmhouse opened to show it to a prospective client and found the two children lying in an unconscious state.
The caretaker then informed the police after which a team rushed them to a nearby hospital where the one-year-old girl was declared brought dead while the three-year-old is stated to be in a critical condition.
Meanwhile, efforts are being made to reunite the three-year-old with her parents.
Police shared that the girls were taken to Sanjay Gandhi hospital where the three-year-old is being treated for starvation and weakness.
