Abducted 5-Year-Old Indian Girl Rescued in Bahrain
Bahrain: Five-year-old Indian girl – Sarah – who was kidnapped by a couple on Tuesday night from Bahrain’s Hoora area was rescued on Wednesday by the police.
She was reportedly kidnapped from her mother’s car in Hoora, when she had gone out of the car to buy bottled water from a store.
Preliminary investigation revealed that taking advantage of girl being alone in the car, the culprits drove off the vehicle with Sarah, who was sitting in the backseat.
The Interior Ministry stated that they had arrested a man and a woman in this case, without revealing their identities.
Capital Governorate Police General Directorate Colonel Khalid Al Thawadi revealed that the kidnappers were a Bahraini man, 38, and an Asian woman, 37.
“We have formed a team of 25 patrol vehicles to search the girl. Police initiated their investigations as soon as the case was reported. The kidnappers were identified and the child was found at the woman’s residence in Hoora. We have initiated the legal proceedings to take action against the abductors,” he said.
Sarah’s uncle, Anish Charles, had posted her picture on facebook seeking help from general public to trace her. “Whoever has taken my baby, please drop her at some mall or any public place with my number on a paper. We will not charge you with anything nor even try to find out who you are…please…please. It’s a desperate plea,” his post reads.
