Girls missing since Friday found at Kurla station after their ‘Mumbai Darshan’

On August 31, five students, studying in eighth grade went missing from South Mumbai since the afternoon. Parents of the missing girls had filed a missing complaint with Colaba Police who began investigating to find the girls. Luckily, the girls were easily traced as they claimed to have been on a little ‘Mumbai Darshan’ trip.

On one hand, the parents of the missing students were constantly in fear for the safety of the girls and on the other hand, the girls were busy on a ‘Mumbai Darshan’ trip. The girls from Colaba’s Fort Convent School were studying in eighth grade. However, the girls had an ‘open day’ on Friday and the parents had come to the school accordingly.

As the results of the recent exams had been declared a few days back, the girls were afraid that their parents would scold them as they had all scored fewer marks in the exams. As per the suspicions, the girls are suspected to have fled due to the same reason.

When the parents realized that the children were missing, they lodged a complaint in Colaba Police station. After the investigation, the police found out through the CCTV footage that the girls had run away to Marine Drive after the school. Later, they went to Hanging Garden and then started roaming in Mumbai. Afterwards, they caught a train to Thane station and later, came back again to Kurla station on Saturday.

However, when these girls were waiting for a train at Kurla station, the police managed to find them during the afternoon on September 1. Earlier, the police had sent the girls’ photos at all police station in Mumbai to increase the chances of finding them.
