Indore (Madhya Pradesh): A girl who was on her way back home from an event with her friend was mysteriously abducted by a youth in the Kanadiya police station area on Tuesday. The abductor allegedly manhandled her friend and their driver when they tried to intervene. Ongoing investigations have revealed that the abductor is a friend of the girl. Their location was traced to Bhopal, but the abductor could not be traced till the filing of this report.

Kanadiya police station-in-charge JP Jamre said a girl, named Ronak (name changed), was abducted by the accused, named Ritesh, from near California City on Kanadiya Road around 8 pm on Monday. Ronak and her friend had gone to attend an event in California City. They were on their way back from there in a car when Ritesh, along with his accomplice, stopped their car and allegedly manhandled the girl, her friend and driver Inder. They later abducted the girl.

Inder and the victim’s friend informed the local residents about the incident and, later, the police, who have registered a case under the relevant sections of the IPC and started an investigation into the case.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the girl knows the abductor. They are friends and it was believed that the girl eloped with him according to a plan. However, the police team was sent to look for the accused. Another police team is trying to trace the location of the accused. So far, the police have come to know that the accused took the girl towards Bhopal.

The victim’s friend and the driver were unaware about the boy, so they tried to intervene when he was taking the girl away. The accused and his accomplices manhandled them and took the girl along with them. The mobile phones of the accused and the girl were switched off, so the police faced difficulty in tracing their exact location. The statements of the girl’s parents are also being taken down by the police.
