A 19-year-old girl has been booked for allegedly abducting a 17-year-old boy in North Delhi's Timarpur locality.
According to a report in the DNA, on 9 September the father of the abducted boy filed a complaint with the area police claiming that the girl had kidnapped his son. He also stated in his complaint that the girl was sexually and mentally harassing the boy. The complaint also states that before eloping with the girl, the boy stole cash and jewellery worth ₹4 lakh from his house.
After initial investigations, the police said that the victim drove his father's car to the girl's house and parked it there. He later sent an SMS to his father informing him about the car and the fact that he was leaving the house with his share of money. The boy took cash, jewellery, ATM cards, mobile phones and his father's driving licence before leaving the house.
"I couldn't find my son anywhere and then his friends informed me about this girl. I went to her house but the parents of the girl were not even bothered. Why will my son steal so much money? The girl was sexually and mentally harassing my son and hence he has taken this step," the father of the minor boy was quoted as saying.
Sources in the police revealed that the boy's father had approached them in July also, stating that his son had gone missing. But the boy had returned home the next day.
"A case of kidnapping under section 363/34 has been registered at Timarpur police station. Further investigations are underway," a senior police officer said.
