Child kidnappers on the prowl

Staff Reporter

Three incidents of kidnapping reported in Amberpet police station limits


‘Kidnapper’ clad in black Punjabi dress

Abductor could be same woman in four cases


HYDERABAD: A gang believed to be involved in the kidnapping of children and releasing them after collecting their jewellery is frequently striking the city.

Three such incidents were reported in Amberpet police station limits in the past few days and one more on Wednesday. A woman clad in a black Punjabi dress approached an old woman, Sharada Bai, who was feeding her grandchild, Prasanna Bhumika, 2, in front of their house at Buruzugalli, around 3 p.m.

Hunt launched

The old woman refused to send her grandchild when the stranger said she would take out the kid and buy her chocolates. After pursuing Sharada Bai for some time, the stranger left the place. But she returned and took away the kid when the grandmother went inside the house for a minute. The Amberpet police launched a hunt for the woman kidnapper following a complaint lodged by the girl’s family members. But by 6 p.m. they received information that the abductor had abandoned the girl near the Amberpet municipal ground after collecting her gold earrings weighing four gm.

Earlier, three girls, Bhavana, 3, Ramya, 3, and Harini, 2, were abducted in a similar way near their houses at Mallikarjunagar, Premnagar and Pochamma Basthi respectively. While Ramya was left at Uppal, the other two kids at Ramanthapur, the locals said. In all the four cases, the abductor was a woman.

The description of the kidnapper by the eyewitnesses suggested that the same woman could be behind all the four abductions.
