Even af­ter a month of a mi­nor girl went miss­ing from Kopar Khairane, the po­lice have not been able to make any break­through in the case.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the 17-year-old girl, a class 3 student, lived with her fam­ily at Sec­tor 3.

“Around 9 am that day, she told her mother that she was go­ing to school to make some en­quiries. The classes of this aca­demic year were yet to start and hence she was not in uni­form. She did not re­turn home,” said Vikash Surya­van­shi, as­sis­tant po­lice in­spec­tor from Kopar Khairane po­lice sta­tion.

Her par­ents reg­is­tered a com­plaint af­ter a day.

“A case un­der sec­tion 367 (pun­ish­ment for kid­nap­ping) of the Indian Pe­nal Code has been reg­is­tered against the uniden­ti­fied cul­prits. We are tak­ing all pos­si­ble steps to trace the miss­ing girl, but have not been able to do so. Our in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on,” Surya­van­shi said.

Mean­while, the Uran po­lice have made no head­way on three girls, in­clud­ing two mi­nors, who went miss­ing from their area around three weeks ago.

NG Ma­jge, po­lice in­spec­tor from Uran po­lice sta­tion said, “We have formed four teams and sent them to dif­fer­ent places search­ing for the girls. But we don’t have any clue about their where­abouts till now.”
