KOLKATA: Seventy five days after she was abducted, Class 10 student Tuktuki Mondal returned to Magrahat police station in South 24 Parganas. She was picked up by seven local youths on May 5.

This was the second time she was kidnapped after the first abduction in the first week of February this year.

She will be produced before the Calcutta high court and then sent to a government welfare home. Subhas Mondal, Tuktuki’s father, has to approach the court demanding her custody - he is likely to do that on Tuesday.

“The girl came to Magrahat police station by herself. We will produce her to the additional chief judicial magistrate court at Diamond Harbour on Tuesday,” said Sunil Chowdhury, South 24 Parganas district superinten­dent.

“The girl was actually tortured by her father and she left home voluntaril­y. No one kidnapped her. The girl herself told us,” Anuj Sharma, IG, law and order, said.

State BJP claimed that her retur n was made possible after National Women Commission’s chairperso­n Lalita Kumarmanga­lam visited Mondal’s house and later had a discussion with the district magistrate and superinten­dent of police.
