The woman, identified as Reshma Kaur, confessed that she kidnapped the child to adopt him, as she did not have a child from her marriage.
A 35-year-old married woman kidnapped a 4-year-old from Delhi, in order to adopt him. However, after the matter reached the police, the accused woman was nabbed in five days and the child was rescued safely.
The incident occurred under the jurisdiction of MS Park police station of Shahdara district. The accused woman has been identified as Reshma Kaur (35), a resident of West Delhi’s Tilak Nagar. The woman confessed that she kidnapped the child to adopt him, as she did not have a child from her marriage.
Woman was traced after analysing 250 CCTV cameras, says police official
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara district), Rohit Meena stated, “On December 24, a case was registered at MS Park police station wherein complainant Pawan Kumar alleged that his 4-year-old boy who was playing outside was kidnapped by someone near his residence at about 4 pm.”
“During the investigation, a team led by Inspector Prashant Yadav was tasked to nab the culprits. During the investigation, the team obtained CCTV footage from more than 250 cameras spanning over a route of over 30 Kms and analyzed them. The CCTV footage showed that the accused lady was taking the kidnapped child with her,” DCP Meena said.
Efforts were made to identify the escape route, when it was found that the woman was cleverly changing her route to escape identification. The route and modes of transport used for kidnapping were thoroughly analyzed and after zeroing into the area of Tilak Nagar she was identified locally. She was later arrested by the police from her house in Tilak Nagar area and the child was recovered.
During sustained interrogation, accused Reshma revealed that she has been married for the last five years and she did not have a child from her marriage. So, she planned to kidnap a male child and on December 24, she took the child with her, after she found him playing outside his house.
