Police said, Naresh (35), a native of Nepal settled in the city, was residing with his family at Vagarayanpalayam for over 20 years, and working as a load man in a gas agency in the same area.
Recently, Naresh’s daughter, Sujmitha, had wanted to visit a relative’s house at Rasipalayam in the outskirts of Sulur.
Both father and daughter came to the bus stand and despite waiting for a long time, Naresh was unable to get a bus to Rasipalayam. At that time, Naresh saw a stranger on a bike who when enquired said he was heading towards Rasipalayam.
Without a second thought, Naresh requested the stranger to drop his daughter at Rasipalayam.
The person agreed, and took the girl along with him. But to the family's shock, Naresh came to know that his daughter did not reach the house of the relative.
Despite searching and waiting for a whole day in neighbouring places, they were unable to trace the girl.
