Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The girl who had cooked up a self-abduction story and had demanded a ransom of Rs 30 lakh from her father was finally found from a house in the Khudel area on Tuesday evening. The girl wanted to study abroad and thought up this plan to extort money from her father.

Giving details, additional DCP (crime) Rajesh Dandotiya said that Kavya Dhakad, a resident of Shivpuri and her friend Harshit were recovered from a house in Shivdham Colony under Khudel police station jurisdiction.

Dandotiya said that Kavya’s photo with her hands tied behind her back had gone viral in the social media and she had send her father the photograph saying that her kidnappers were demanding ransom of Rs 30 lakh.

As Kavya had gone from Shivpuri to Kota for studies, the Kota police became active. Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia too got involved and asked the Rajasthan police to recover the girl.

Investigations by the Kota police showed that she had not been kidnapped and was not in Kota.

They came to know that she was in Indore and contacted the Indore police on March 20, who started searching for her in the Bhanwarkuan area. But when the police reached the place where she was staying, she had skipped town along with a friend. However, Indore police retrieved a CCTV footage showing Kavya with one male friend.

Dandotiya said that the girl was aware that Kota police had come to the city looking for her so she and her friend reached Amritsar and were staying there.

Two days ago, she reached the city and was staying in a rented house in the Shivdham Colony from where they were recovered by the crime branch team. Kota police were informed by the crime branch.
