Hyderabad: Tension prevailed at Chandanagar on Friday when the parents of four girls who had gone missing on Tuesday, staged a protest in front of the police station.
Police said that the girls were doing small time jobs in the area. They were last seen by one of the girls’ father on Tuesday, a few hours before they went missing.
Swapna (12), Renuka (9) and Kaveri (8) are residents of Bandamkommu village in RC Puram and Padma (10) a resident of Shantinagar in Chandanagar.
All four girls are relatives. Their parents are daily wage workers. The girls sometimes would go to the nearby Anganwadi centres, but would mostly loiter in the locality, doing small jobs and earning money to eat at hotels.
On Tuesday, at around 4.30 pm, Padma’s father Mr Yadaiah saw them playing. The girls did not return by night and the parents started searching in vain. They lodged a complaint with the police.
“We found that earlier, Swapna had gone missing but returned after a few days. We are investigating that angle. We are also verifying CCTV camera footages,” said Chandanagar Inspector Mr N. Tirupathi Rao....
