‘Missing girl’ found abandoned in Bhadrak

Bhadrak: A minor girl, who was reported missing since Friday, was found abandoned at an isolated place near her residence at Gadapada village under Tihidi police limits in Bhadrak district on Saturday.

The girl was tied up and stuffed inside a bag and rescued by the family members at around 8 pm yesterday. As the condition of the girl was critical, she was later admitted to Tihidi hospital.

Initially, police had registered a missing case basing on the complaint filed by the girl’s family and a probe was initiated in this regard.

Though the exact reason behind the ‘strange disappearance’ of the girl student is still unclear, senior police officials informed that the victim would be examined once her condition improves as she was rescued from near her residence.

Tension prevailed in the village after girl’s family members had roughed up a youth for his alleged complicity in the case yesterday.

One suspect has been detained and he is being interrogated, police sources said.
