Burhanpur (Madhya Pradesh): Police have reunited a two-year-old girl with her family and have arrested the kidnapper with the help of CCTVs installed at different places in Burhanpur town.

The police rescued the girl from Bhusawal town, in Maharashtra about 60 kilometres away from Burhanpur.

According to reports, the matter was reported at a small Sewal village that falls under the Nepanagar police station limit in Burhanpur district on Sunday afternoon. Nepanagar police station in charge Rajendra Ingle informed that complainant Sunil had lodged a missing report of his daughter. In his complaint, he claimed that when he along with his wife went to work in the agriculture field, one of his relatives Sonu, a native of Dhulkot village abducted his daughter.

In the CCTV, the accused asked some of the autos to go to the railway station. Failing to get an auto, he bought liquor from a nearby liquor shop and then took the girl towards the station which appeared on CCTV installed in Shanwara.

Sonu reached the railway station in a tata magic vehicle. The police team checked the footage of Sagar Tower and the railway station, and they found out that the accused had boarded the AC-3 coach of Danapur Express and went towards Bhusaval.
