The distressed woman informed her husband and family about the incident. In order to resolve the mystery, the minor girl’s father obtained video footage from a nearby installed CCTV camera. The video shows two burqa-clad women coming out from their house. One of the women was carrying the infant in her hand. Police registered an FIR and launched an investigation into the kidnapping.
Later, the police resolved the mystery surrounding the abduction and close relatives were the kidnappers according to the investigation.
Police arrested the minor girl’s aunt and other relatives. Police took the help of CCTV footage after identification by family and recovered the newborn.
