Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): The National Commission for Protection of Childís Rights (NCPCR) team on Sunday sent a child to the Children's observation Centre. The move was termed as a case of mistaken identity.

On Sunday afternoon, one Sapna Nayak, 11, daughter of Rajesh Nayak, who is a resident of Devta Colony, went to fetch a Tiffin box at her auntís shop, which is located outside Mahakal Temple premises.

A team of NCPCR was visiting the temple premises, when her aunt was away from the shop. Mahakaleshwar temple has been selected as a child-friendly zone out of 50 prominent religious places to prevent child beggary.
