The 24-year-old Vaishnavi Bairagi, a resident of Shankarpura, had a dispute with her husband Shravan Das Bairagi and she came to the railway station on December 24 to catch a train to Bhopal. According to her fabricated story, while going to the tap to wash the milk bottle, she had left her two-year-old son Vansh lying on the bench and when she returned, the child was missing.

On December 25, the GRP started a search for the child by registering a case of kidnapping. The police got the CCTV footage from the cameras of nearby hotels along with the railway station.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, information was received about the child being found abandoned at the Bajranggarh railway station of Ratlam division. With the help of RPF, the child was taken to Meghnagar railway station. The identity of the person who abandoned the child could not be ascertained.
