The Titwala police have arrested a 35-year-old private tutor from his residence in Uttar Pradesh for the abduction of a 13-year-old girl from the Manpada-Titwala area in Kalyan. He was traced through GPS after 20 days of the girl going missing. The girl was last seen drying clothes at her house.
Sub-Inspector Pankaj Patil said that the man couldn’t be traced for almost three weeks as his mobile phone was switched off. He said the teacher was nailed as soon as he switched it on. As per the police, the accused gave private lessons to the girl and convinced her that he loved her. The Free Press Journal has chosen not to reveal the identity of the accused to protect the minor.
Patil said, “We have registered a case under the Indian Penal Code for kidnapping. We will conduct a medical test tomorrow, before adding other sections. Details can’t be revealed right now.”
