Delhi police on Thursday said that a 32-year-old woman who had been abducted 17 years ago in 2006 was discovered in Delhi’s Gokalpuri area. The Seemapuri Police Station received secret information and successfully located the kidnapped woman on May 22.

DCP Shahdara Rohit Meena stated, “The kidnapped girl, who is now 32 years old, was found after being missing for 17 years.”

In 2006, a case was registered at Gokulpuri Police Station in Delhi under Section 363 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) based on a complaint filed by the girl’s parents, police said.

According to police, during the investigation, it was revealed that the girl had been kidnapped in 2006.

The girl informed the police that she had been residing with a person named Deepak in the village of Cherdih, District Baliya, Uttar Pradesh after leaving her home. However, due to a dispute, she left Deepak during the lockdown and began living in Gokalpuri, where she rented accommodation.

This story brings closure to a long-standing case of kidnapping, shedding light on the woman’s whereabouts after 17 years of being missing.

The police will continue their investigation to gather more information about the circumstances surrounding her abduction and subsequent life experiences, said the police. (With inputs from PTI)
