Times of India reports –
“An autorickshaw driver was booked for trying to abduct a six-year-girl from Sector 45 around 8.05am on Thursday. The girl’s mother, Bhakti Sudha, a resident of Ridgewood Estate in DLF 4, told police that after dropping her son in DPS, Sector 45, she waited for an auto to take her to DPS Montessori School in Sector 47, where she had to drop her daughter.
“When I signalled, an autorickshaw stopped. My daughter sat in the vehicle first, but when I was trying to enter, the driver fled. I kept shouting at him to stop and even ran behind the vehicle, but to not avail. Meanwhile, a passer-by saw my daughter crying from his car and gave me a lift so that we could follow the autorickshaw. Finally, after covering a distance of around half-a-kilometre, we managed to stop the auto. I rushed out of the car and got my daughter out. When I questioned the driver, he claimed, he was not aware that I was left behind. However, till the car driver parked his vehicle on roadside and came to get hold of the auto driver, he managed to escape with his vehicle,” the 40-year-old woman said in her complaint.
“My daughter was shouting and crying, but still the driver did not look back. This shows his foul intentions. I want a strict action against the auto driver,” added the woman.
Based on the complaint, an FIR has been lodged against the unknown auto driver under Section 365 (kidnap) of the IPC at Sector 40 police station.
The woman told the police the registration number of the autorickshaw and preliminary investigation found that the vehicle was registered in the name of one Sarjen Ali. “We have identified the accused auto driver and are conducting raids to nab him. He will be arrested soon,” said Bijender Kumar, SHO, Sector 40 police station.”
In Jan this year, a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped by an auto driver from the front of her house in a slum in Rajiv Nagar area, Gurugram and raped. She returned home the next morning after she was dropped off in her colony in the same auto. That case appears to be unsolved as yet.
