In a horrific incident of kidnapping, on Monday, a 21 year old Delhi University (DU) student was allegedly kidnapped outside Shyama Prasad Mukherji College.
The victim hails from Farrukhnagar, Gurugram, and according to her family, was going to appear for her semester exam. Harish Yadav, who later called the victim’s father, identified himself as the kidnapper and warned him against apprising the police. However, the girl’s father did approach the police in Farrukhnagar, but was asked to file a complaint in Delhi because that is where she was kidnapped.
A complaint was lodged in Gurugram on Wednesday only after the local residents raised a hue and cry.
“I tried to call up my daughter but there was no response. As she didn’t come back, I called up the police control room but they didn’t pay heed to my requests,” said the girl’s father. The local police stated that since the girl had gone missing from Delhi, they were to approach the Delhi Police. “We then called our relatives for help. On Wednesday when villagers gathered and pressured them to file a complaint, the police registered an FIR.”
An FIR has been registered against Harish Yadav, who is believed to be a resident of Fazilpur village, under section 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC at Farrukhnagar police station. “We have constituted a special team to look into the kidnapping. Our team is conducting raids to nab the accused,” said inspector Babu Lal, SHO of Farrukhnagar police station.
Exemplifying the police’s incompetency, the girl remains untraced.
