Delhi: Scolded, house help kidnaps child, flees to Alwar | Delhi News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: A three-year-old girl was rescued on Tuesday from a house help after the latter had allegedly kidnapped her from Patel Nagar for being scolded by the child’s mother over her work.
The child was rescued from Alwar in Rajasthan within three hours of the kidnap, a senior official said. The Patel Nagar police station received a complaint that a help, Shivani (23), had fled with her employer’s daughter. The victim’s mother told police that Shivani had called and said she would have to pay a hefty ransom to get her daughter back.
The woman also said she suspected that the help had done so to take revenge as she was scolded in the morning. The accused had also warned the mother not to inform police or she would kill the girl.
Shivani was working at the house for a long time and earned Rs 25,000 a month. She was hired through an agency and her verification was also done. Police said the help had asked for salary and around Rs 45,000 were also transferred.
Police circulated pictures of both the help and the child and a search operation was launched. Multiple teams were formed to scan several CCTV footage while other teams activated technical surveillance.
“Surveillance revealed that Shivani was travelling to Alwar with the child. Immediately, the SSP Bhiwadi, the SSP Alwar and the SSP Sikar in Rajasthan were alerted. Check points were put up by Rajasthan Police while Delhi Police teams also left by road for Alwar,” said an officer.
Within three hours, a team led by the SSP Bhiwadi intercepted the help at a check point. “The girl was safely rescued, while the help was arrested and booked for kidnapping,” the officer said. A police team left for Rajasthan along with the mother.
“The rescue in such a short time was possible due to minute-to-minute coordination between Delhi and Rajasthan police,” the officer said.
