Six minor girls of a family who allegedly went ‘missing’ from Nashik two days ago, were rescued by city police after they were traced to Mumbai outside Shah Rukh Khan’s bungalow ‘Mannat’, where they had reached to catch a glimpse of their favorite Bollywood star.
According to police, a missing complaint was lodged at Mhasrul police station by parents of the girls on the night of May 23.
Subhash Chandra Deshmukh, in-charge of Mhasrul police station said:
“The young girls, all cousin sisters, aged between 12 and 15, left their house in Nashik on May 23 evening and proceeded to the famous Nanduri temple in Kalwan taluka of the district. From there they went to Nashik Road railway station and boarded the Shatabdi Express to reach suburban Dadar from where they ended up outside the actor’s residence, hoping to see their idol once”.
The girls were brought home safely within 24 hours after a police team from Nashik was sent to Mumbai in search for the girls. The worried family had told the cops that the girls had a fascination for Bollywood.
After searching railway stations and bus stands across the metropolis, the Nashik team found these girls outside ‘Mannat’ in suburban Bandra, with the help of Thane and Kalyan police, in co-ordination with the GRP.
The girls were then brought back to Nashik and handed over to their parents on Wednesday after proper police counseling.
