Nayagarh: A six year-old girl has been reportedly missing from Nayagarh district, putting the scanner once again on police administration.
The incident took at Dhunduligadia under Banigochha police limits. The minor girl identified as Baby Nayak had gone missing while she was playing in front of her house on June 12 and is still untraced, family members alleged.
Jhuli Nayak, mother of the girl said “She was playing inside the house when I went taking bath. After returning, I called her to take food and she refused to eat and went outside the house to play. Later when I called her for eating, she was found missing.”
Family members of the girl and their neighbours launched a frantic search at every possible location but failed to trace her. They eventually lodged a complaint with police and a case was registered in this connection.
“We have intensified the search with the help of sniffer dogs. All the water bodies in the nearby locality have been searched. Information has been passed on to neighbouring police stations and districts. We hope to crack the case soon,” said Umakant Mallick, additional Superintendent of Police.
“The investigation is underway and we are doing our best to locate the minor girl,” he added.
