CWC demands statements of Budhia, mother recorded under Sec 161, 164
Bhubaneswar: A day after Twin City Police Commissioner confirmed boy wonder Budhia Singh and his mother Sukanti Singh are in Kodaikanal of Tamil Nadu on a vacation, the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) of Khurda district today demanded the statements of the mother-son duo be recorded under Sec 161 and 164 of CrPC after their return to Bhubaneswar.
Unwilling to accept the theory that it was a normal vacation tour, the CWC believes there could be some other reason behind it.
The committee also said it would visit the Sports Hostel in Bhubaneswar to find out the truth once Budhia returns to the capital city.
Meanwhile, the Kodiakanal Police today questioned Budhia and his mother following a request made by the Twin City Police Commissionerate.
Notably, on Sunday, Twin City Police Commissioner YB Khurania had said Budhia and his mother were traced to Kodaikanal and will return to Bhubaneswar on July 24-25 via Mumbai.
Revealing that he had talked to Budhia and his mother over phone, Khurania had also dismissed the charge of abduction of the boy.
Earlier, the CWC had asked the Nayapalli police to trace out Budhia. Besides, the Committee had served a notice to producer of ‘Budhia Singh – Born To Run’ movie Subhamitra Sen regarding the missing of Budhia and asked him to reply within three days.
