A 24-year-old married woman who had gone missing on Sunday from a Delhi Metro station resurfaced on Monday. She denied that she had been abducted as suspected earlier.
The North-East Delhi resident had married a Haryana-resident on February 5. The couple had arrived in the Capital a few days ago and went to the Walled City to shop.
According to the police, they headed towards Chandni Chowk metro station after shopping. Upon reaching there, he swapped his metro card and entered, but his wife’s could not enter as her card did not have sufficient balance.
“She told her husband to wait till she got the card recharged,” said a police officer.
When she did not return, the husband started searching for her. He approached the police when he could not find her anywhere around the station.
A case of abduction was subsequently registered at the Kashmere Gate metro police station and a search was launched for her. The only CCTV footage available showed the couple using the escalator to enter the underground metro station, but there was no footage of her leaving,” said the police.
On Sunday night, her relative in Saharanpur received a call from her saying that she had been kidnapped.
In a dramatic turn of events, the woman was traced to a colony in South Delhi on Monday evening by the police. She purportedly told the police that she had not been kidnapped.
Her father said there were no issues between the couple.
