Akshita who was kidnapped from Amberpet was abandoned in Dilsukhnagar

A five-year-old girl abducted by a woman from Amberpet the previous day was abandoned on Tuesday in Dilsukhnagar

The girl, Akshita, found crying on roadside, was spotted by passers-by and taken to the Saroorangar police station. As the child remembered her father's mobile phone number, the police contacted him and reunited Akshita with her family members.

Akshita was returning home after playing with children in their locality at Mallikarjunanagar in Bagh Amberpet around 10 a.m. on Monday when a woman approached her. “The children later told us that the woman clad in a sari pushed aside them and took away Akshita stating that the latter's mother had caller her,” the Amberpet police said.

On learning about the incident, the girl's father, Ramakrishna, a private school van driver, mother, Mamata, and relatives searched the area and surrounding localities. They later lodged a complaint with the Amberpet police. On Tuesday morning, residents of the area assembled at the police station agitating over the abduction of the girl and urging the police to act seriously.

Some Telugu TV news channels started telecasting the agitation live with the abducted girl's parents making fervent appeals not to harm and release her. “Akshita says the woman took her to an undisclosed location in a vehicle and confined in a room. She says the abductor saw on Tuesday morning the TV channels airing the kidnap story,” the police said.

Apparently worried of being tracked, the woman collected the golden earrings she wore, abandoned her on roadside near Venkatadri theatre in Dilsukhnagar and disappeared. Meanwhile, the Amberpet police picked up a woman Laxmi in the morning based on the descriptive particulars of the abductor given by the victim.

They ‘interrogated' Laxmi but she turned out to be innocent as the girl was set free by the abductor whose identity remained a mystery.
